Members of an Indiana
University of Pennsylvania fraternity will be hosting a bone marrow donor drive
on February 14 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Hadley Union Building Ohio Room.
Members of Kappa
Alpha Psi fraternity will host the drive, which is being co-sponsored by UPMC
and Be The Match, operator of the National Bone Marrow Donor Program. The goal
of the drive is to increase the number of donors, particularly African
Americans, on the national registry. Bone marrow donations are used to help
persons with cancer and other blood diseases.
The drive is dedicated
to the late Dr. Rex Crowley, a professor at Robert Morris University in
Pittsburgh and a member of Kappa Alpha Psi.
To sign up for the
national registry, a representative of the donor program will take a swab of
the inside of the cheek of the person wishing to be listed on the national
IUP 1989 graduate
Howard Russell, of Pittsburgh, president of the Kappa Scholarship Endowment
Fund of Western Pennsylvania and member of the Pittsburgh Alumni Chapter of
Kappa Alpha Psi, is spearheading the regional program.
