National Anemia Action Council Launches New Tutorial for Deferred Blood Donors
The National Anemia Action Council has launched a new online tutorial Anemia & Blood Donation for blood donors who
have been deferred because of a low blood count and the professionals who work with them. Every month at least one
million people visit local blood drives and donation centers in the United States; unfortunately, about 10% of them
are not allowed to donate because their blood count falls below the acceptable level set by the FDA. Deferred donors
are often sent away with little or no advice on how to raise their blood counts, stay healthy, and try to donate again.
The new tutorial provides this information. To view the tutorial, please visit http://www.anemia.org/patients/blood-donation/.
