The City College’s Health Fair, presented April 25-26 by Health Services and facilitated by Blood Source, allowed students to have the opportunity to help save another human being’s life.
Alexis Bell, undecided major and City College student/athlete, offered to become a blood donor. She said she believes that everybody has a right to live. “I will provide anything that I can, just to know that I am helping out an individual in need,” said Bell.
The event was guided by Wendy Gomez, City College nurse.
According to bloodsource.org, the purpose for this event was to give students the ability to be blood donors and help save patients who are in need of more blood in order to remain alive.
Jazzmine Brown, kinesiology major, also donated blood, but she explained her experience about it as “uncomfortable.” “I would love to save everybody and that‘s the main reason why I decided to do this,” said Brown.
