Nursing Students Add Names to the Be The Match Registry
Nursing Students Add Names to the Be The Match Registry.

Junior Nursing students hosted successful Be The Match events on February 21st and 26th.  The work of the students supports the efforts of the National Marrow Donor Program in assisting people diagnosed with life-threatening blood cancers, such as leukemia.

For the last quarter century, Be The Match has run the largest and most varied marrow registry in the world. It connects patients with life-saving bone marrow donors.  UNCP students added 211 names to the registry!

The event aligned to meet course objectives for Family Nursing I (NUR 3450). This is yet another example of the UNCP Nursing Department making a difference in the community!
