FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. - You don't need to scan the crowd. Simply stop into the Health Fair 11 building and Memorial Blood Centers can help you find your type, your blood type. Anyone 16 years or older can take the first step in saving lives with blood type screening.
Just a tiny finger prick and within minutes you will know your type--whether you are an A, B, or O. And knowing your blood type, you'll be that much closer to being able to provide the life-saving gift your friends, family, neighbors, and others in our community need.
Memorial Blood Centers, an independent nonprofit and primary provider of blood to over 30 area hospitals, has been saving lives in the community for over 60 years. Through 11 donor centers and community-sponsored blood drives, we welcome generous volunteers who donate over 2,000 units of blood each week to meet demand, and deliver expert technical services to clients around the world as a leader in transfusion medicine.
