The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to educating the public about the value of chiropractic care, in collaboration with ChiroCongress and ChiroCongress Cares, two national organizations that represent and support chiropractic and chiropractic state associations have launched a national blood drive through December 2022.
“ChiroCongress and ChiroCongress Cares are proud to work with F4CP and the American Red Cross to raise awareness and donations across the country through this drive,” states Elizabeth Klein, executive director. She explains, “Since the pandemic and other disruptions to essential services, there has been an extreme shortage of blood supply, causing a national crisis. Through collaboration, we anticipate state association leaders, doctors of chiropractic (DCs), and their patients will get involved to donate and support the Red Cross.”
The virtual blood drive is a nationwide effort to encourage individuals to schedule a blood donation near them, support financially or utilize this drive to build awareness of the need to save lives. Participants can visit https://chirocongress.org/chirocares/2022-blood-drive/ and find a blood donation center near them.
“We are honored to be collaborating with ChiroCongress and ChiroCongress Cares to run a national campaign for such a great cause,” says Sherry McAllister, DC, president, F4CP. “This blood drive comes at a very important time in our country and our profession has the ability to make a positive impact nationwide.”
