Become a blood Plasma donor
On October 26, the second day of Bagotville military gathering will be held at the Plasmavie permanent collection center in Saguenay. Initiated by MCpl Véronique Savard last fall, this annual donation day, is authorized and encouraged by Colonel Radiff. It’s a great opportunity for the members of the Base to take time to make their first donation or to maintain their good habits. Although as important as the donation of blood to save lives, plasma donation is used primarily for the manufacture of drugs. The Chicoutimi Picking Center is one of four permanent points of service to reduce Héma- Québec's dependence on foreign markets. Indeed, 21% of the plasma used to manufacture our medicines comes from Quebec while 79% must be acquired from the outside market. A Plasmavie Saguenay kiosk will be installed at the base gym on October 20th for the sports day between 8 am and 3 pm. Come in large numbers to register to make this 2nd edition, a resounding success.
