Stony Brook University’s Student Blood Drive Committee hosted a 9/11 memorial blood drive on Sept. 9, partnering with the New York Blood Center to fight the blood shortage currently affecting blood centers & hospitals.
This year, New York became the tenth of 15 states and the District of Columbia to legalize gay marriage. But in the United States, men who have sex with other men still cannot donate blood. On Nov. 6, Stony Brook University’s Blood Donor Equality movement presented “The Blood Donor Policy Panel” in the Charles B. Wang Center Theatre. The event highlighted both social and scientific perspectives on the ban.
