Woman of Wellness to hear from San Diego Blood Bank representative

FALLBROOK – Woman of Wellness meets Thursday, March 5, at 6 p.m. for “San Diego Blood Bank – Saving Lives Today, Improving Life Tomorrow” at Fallbrook Library, 124 S. Mission Road.

Fallbrook Regional Health District’s Woman of Wellness Program is looking forward to a presentation by Rob Tressler, Ph.D., vice president of laboratories for the San Diego Blood Bank. He oversees the public cord blood bank and cell therapy research program. His scientific focus is in stem cell biology, oncology and anti-aging research.

In addition, FRHD will sponsor a blood drive March 31, at the administrative office, 138 S. Brandon Road, Fallbrook. Watch for details and mark the calendar now as this opportunity to donate blood.
