CANCELED =Marcus Blood Center Director Dr. Eilat Shinar Talk on Blood Supply in Israel
March 30, 2020 @ 7:00 pm
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED AS THE SPEAKER IS NOT ABLE TO LEAVE ISRAEL AT THIS TIME DUE TO THE HEALTH RISK FROM THE VIRUS.
“What would happen if the blood supply stopped in Israel?”
Dr. Eilat Shinar, Director of the new Marcus Blood Center will come to our community to present how Magen David Adom is building the first underground, self contained, bomb proof blood center in the world in Ramla, Israel.
Please join us for an informative evening on how this blood center is critical to Israel’s survival, and the role it plays in supplying 100% of the blood to the IDF and 90% to the rest of Israel, as well as the work it does in blood group research and cord blood stem cell research.
Also, learn how one student at Pardes Jewish Day School is raising thousands of dollars to supply paramedics in Israel with Red Bags of Courage that they use to save lives when they respond to emergencies.
