EDINBURG — The University of Texas-Pan American is joining Texas State University-San Marcos (TSU-SM) in raising awareness to students about how they can save a life.
UTPA and TSU-SM are holding a bone marrow donor registration drive for TSU-SM's Kathy Soliz Texas State Radiation Therapy Outreach Program Feb. 27-29 on the Edinburg campus to encourage more students to become donors.
Those who register will be included in the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP). The NMDP's “Be the Match” Foundation will provide buccal swab kits and other materials for the volunteers to use for the marrow donor registration.
