Blood donation can be part of an ongoing healthy lifestyle. Not only do blood products save lives every day in hospitals county wide, but volunteer donors benefit from the “mini physical” they receive each time they donate. From the blood pressure check to the finger stick to the cholesterol results, each of these tests helps ensure a healthy person is donating for others.
In an effort to encourage blood donation during National Blood Donor Month, Kern Family Health Care is once again offering a great, health-enhancing donor prize as we Resolve to Get Fit and Save Lives together in January 2018. All donors can enter to win an Apple iWatch Series 2 every week in January!
According to CEO Doug Hayward: “Kern Family Health Care recognizes the importance of donating blood. As the largest health plan in Kern County, we know that our members rely on blood products being available when they are needed. We are proud to partner with Houchin Community Blood Bank to promote blood donations to ensure an adequate supply of blood and blood products in our community.” Kern Family Health Care is dedicated to improving the health status of its members through an integrated managed health care delivery system.
