MDCC has partnered with Mississippi Blood Services for the last decade by hosting at least three to four blood drives each semester. "We are proud that our campus communities takes a few minutes of their time throughout the semester to donate blood," says Dr. Edward Rice, vice president of student services. "A few minutes out of our daily schedule can mean a lifetime for patients, their families and friends."
