It’s looking like Friday, Dec. 8 is going to be a busy day at Moab Regional Hospital (MRH) as two special events will be taking place.

The first event will see the St. Mary’s Bloodmobile on site from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the MRH parking lot. A photo ID is required to donate blood and donors must be 16 years or older (16- and 17-year-olds need parental consent), weigh at least 110 lbs (120 lbs for students), be fully hydrated. Drink enough water before arrival, have eaten a healthy meal before donating, and must not have had piercings or tattoos within the last 12 months.

Following the blood drive, MRH will partner with Planned Parenthood of Salt Lake City to hold health education sessions for young teens aged 11-15. All are welcome to ask questions and learn about their bodies and the changes they are going through in a comfortable and professional environment. Three sessions will be held starting at 1:30 p.m. for girls in grades 6-7 in Education Room 1. The session for girls in grades 8-9 will begin at 4 p.m. in Education Room 1, and the boys’ session will begin at 1:30 p.m. in Education Room 3.

For more information, call MRH at 435-719-3500.
