Blood Donation

For the Extra Credit assignment - Blood or Organ donation you must show me that you have given blood at the College's fall blood drive or you are participating in the national or state organ donation program. Please keep and show me the paperwork from the blood drive to receive credit (no photos, band-aids on the arm, etc.).

Organ Donation

If you do not or cannot give blood, you can still earn extra credit by being an organ donor. Show me your driver's license if you are already a donor. If you are not a donor and wish to become one then go to the U. S. government website - Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and you can sign up there. There is another site at Donate Life New England. I will also accept blood marrow donation commitments. Please note that there is a deadline for this assignment and you will be notified of the deadline during the semester.

Flu Shot/Pilates/Yoga

For the Extra Credit assignment - Flu Shot/Pilates/Yoga you must show me that you have had a recent flu shot or have attended the Pilates or Yoga program on campus during the fall semester. Please remember that these are optional assignments. These extra credit opportunities are options you decided to do in addition to and outside of your regular labs and or lectures. In this course, you are under no obligation to get a flu shot, donate blood or become an organ donor. If you do so, it is of your own free will and responsibility.
