Have you ever wondered who invented bloodmobiles? Meet the remarkable Charles Richard Drew. Born in 1904, when the four principal blood types had been newly discovered, he eventually became the father of the modern blood bank in the United States.

As the assistant director for a pilot national blood banking program by 1941, Dr. Drew's tireless efforts revolutionized healthcare and had an infinite impact on public health. He not only invented bloodmobiles but also stood up for African-American rights throughout his career.

During , we proudly highlight Dr. Drew and pay tribute to his pioneering contributions! Join us in celebrating excellence in the medical industry by learning more about the inspiring black pioneers who have shaped healthcare.

Itโ€™s ! Organ, eye, tissue, blood, platelets, and bone marrow donations make an incredible impact. With United Tissue Resources, we want to honor those who have given and received life through donation, those currently awaiting transplants, and those we've lost along the way.

๐Ÿซ€ Did you know? One organ donor can save up to eight lives, and a single tissue and eye donor can restore the sight of two people and help over 75!

๐Ÿ’ช 70% of those who need a bone marrow transplant lack a family match. Your donation could change someoneโ€™s life.

๐ŸฉธPlatelets help those battling cancer, chronic diseases, and traumatic injuries. With a shelf-life of 7 days, these donations are always in need.

๐Ÿฉน Just 3% of the eligible population donates blood. We Are Blood needs 200 donors daily to meet the demands of over 50 hospitals in Central Texas.

Be a beacon of hopeโ€“ donate and save lives. http://weareblood.org/donor.๐Ÿ’™

Today, we are continuing our Black History Month celebration while also celebrating Women in Science Day! ๐Ÿงชโฃ๏ธ Let's honor Dr. Jane Cooke Wright, a visionary physician and cancer researcher who dedicated her life to revolutionizing chemotherapy techniques. She pioneered using nitrogen mustard agents, developed innovative drug testing methods, and introduced non-surgical procedures for delivering chemotherapy. Her groundbreaking work has transformed the field of medicine.

In 1964, she became the only woman and African-American among the founders of the American Society of Clinical Oncology. She served on esteemed boards throughout her career and became the highest-ranking African-American woman in a U.S. medical institution.

Dr. Jane Cooke Wright received numerous accolades and recognition for her exceptional contributions. Among them were the Merit Award from Mademoiselle magazine and the Smith Medal, the highest honor presented by her alma mater, Smith College. Her legacy extends far beyond her lifetime, inspiring many to continue her journey of progress in the fight against cancer.

In honor of , We Are Blood is spotlighting the remarkable contributions of pioneering Black Americans in the medical industry. Today, we celebrate the incredible achievements of Dr. Daniel Hale Williams III. His trailblazing spirit led him to achieve extraordinary milestones, including becoming one of the first people to perform an open-heart surgery successfully in 1893.

Initially setting up his practice in Chicago, Williamsโ€™ impact extended beyond his patients, teaching at his alma mater. Unwilling to accept the injustices of the era, Williams founded Provident Hospital and Training School for Nurses. This groundbreaking institution became a beacon of hope and opportunity for countless aspiring Black medical professionals. He also co-founded the National Medical Association, which served as an alternative professional organization for Black medical practitioners.

Passing in 1931, Dr. Daniel Hale Williams forever redefined medicine. His pioneering spirit and unwavering commitment to equality in medicine continue to inspire generations. Learn more: https://weareblood.org/blog/we-are-blood-celebrates-black-excellence/.
