The Ad Spem Blood Donator Association will be at Sapienza University every Wednesday and Thursday throughout the month of July from 8 to 12 am to collect blood donations.

Blood donors must be aged 18 to 65, weigh no less than 50 kg, have regular blood pressure, and no cardiac problems. Donors may have a light breakfast beforehand – coffee or tea, fruit juice, and biscuits; on the other hand, you are discouraged from drinking milk. To participate one’s sanitary card is required.

Blood withdrawal is painless, risk-free, performed with sterile disposable materials and is always preceded by a check-up with a doctor. Employees who donate blood are given the rest of the day off.

Blood donations cannot be accepted from any individual who suffers from alcoholism, drug addiction, Hepatitis B or C, HIV, diabetes with an insulin dependence, high hypertension, autoimmunity deficiencies, and chronic kidney diseases. Temporary exclusions may be made for vaccinations, infective diseases, major surgery, tattoos, blood transfusions, and certain types of medication.
