The newly merged SUNY College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE)/SUNY Institute of Technology (SUNYIT) is partnering
with the American Red Cross and SEMATECH for the sixth annual CNSE Blood Drive on
Tuesday, July 8.
Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood. Nearly 14
million units of red blood cells are used annually for blood
transfusions. On any given day, about 38,000 units of red blood cells
are needed to treat accident victims, children and adults undergoing
surgery, and patients receiving treatment for cancer and other diseases.
