honor of Dr. Deitemeyer’s inauguration on Nov. 3.

CPCC and Project Life invite students to attend its upcoming Drive Thru Swabbing event, being held on CPCC’s Central Campus from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., on Nov. 1, in the Overcash Driveway.

CPCC-based student organizations, including Rotaract Club, Cytotechnology Student Association and Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, are all partnering with CPCC Service-Learning/Student Life to play a key leadership role in this initiative which seeks to add 700 new donors to the National Bone Marrow Registry List.

During the event, participants will have the inside of their cheeks swabbed for a tissue sample and complete paperwork. The process will take no longer than 10 minutes. After completing the registration process, participants will not only be added to the National Bone Marrow Registry List, but also have the opportunity to enjoy a free lunch – provided by CPCC’s Baking & Pastry Arts students – sign a well wish card for Dr. Deitemeyer and win a variety of prizes.

Come out and be a part of the movement and help save a life!

and how you could be a life saver for another person!  The panel will be moderated by a leukemia survivor who will share his story on how bone marrow donation gave him a second chance at life.
