Description

We are a group of 2 Co-chairs, 16 Coordinators, 30 General Executive members, and approx. 90 volunteers, who work along with the Canadian Blood Services (CBS) to promote blood donation on campus by setting up blood clinics and educational events across campus. We organize the LifeBus through CBS that takes groups of students to the permanent clinic on Gardiners Road to donate blood. Our club organizes promotional events for the OneMatch National Stem Cell/Bone Marrow Registry to educate the public on how to join this registry. In 2017, we hosted our inaugural one-day conference in the spring semester called QHEARTT – Queen’s Healthcare Education, Awareness, and Research in Transplant and Transfusion.

The Queen’s University Blood Team seeks to educate students about the importance of blood donation and other initiatives of the Canadian Blood Services. We know that some people are uneasy about the prospect of donating, so we work to reduce the negative stigma and make people more comfortable about the prospect of giving blood. Our club seeks to provide accessible, easy, and safe spaces for donating blood on campus. We strongly believe that this is a worthy cause to volunteer for to help save lives make a difference in our community!  If interested in volunteering, please email qubtvolunteers@gmail.com.
