Dale Lovett recognized by Carter Bloodcare
Mar 1, 2022
Dale Lovett, Olney blood drive coordinator and Olney Hamilton Hospital board of directors chair, was recently presented a plaque by Colleen Horan, Carter BloodCare field recruitment consultant, in recognition of their Blood Emergency Readiness Corps blood drive. The January 19 blood drive was held at the Olney Hamilton Hospital Education Center and collected 31 pints of life-saving blood. BERC is a nationwide blood reserve program aimed at preparing for emergency situations in which blood needs exceed or deplete local supply. More than 20 U.S. blood centers have committed to proactively collect additional units of blood to create a readily available supply for emergency needs. These units are held in reserve for use by participating BERC centers in critical-need events.
The Olney community hosts regular blood drives at the education center. The next one is scheduled for Wednesday, March 16 from 1 pm to 6 pm.
