This group is for people interested in blood donation. Every six minutes, a patient at Mayo Clinic needs a transfusion of blood or blood products. A simple blood donation can save the life of a child with leukemia, restore the strength of a cancer patient, or provide a critical transfusion to an accident victim. There is no substitute for this lifesaving gift, so patients rely upon the caring spirit of blood donors. Join the discussion and learn more about blood donation!


Regardless of your blood type, please consider making an appointment to donate blood. Please contact us to make an appointment by calling the Blood Donor Program at (507) 284-4475 - Hilton Building or emailing us at
