Every unit (pint) is collected, transported, tested and stored according to tightly-controlled procedures.

Examples of transfusion needs are:

  • Cancer: up to 8 units/month

Book Club – Thursday, May 23

Discussing The Hidden Life of Trees

The May book is The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben. With compelling selections from the original book and stunning, large-format photographs of trees from around the world, this gorgeous volume distills the essence of Wohlleben’s message to show trees in all their glory and diversity. Through rich language highlighting the interconnectedness of forest ecosystems, the book offers fascinating insights about the fungal communication highway known as the “wood wide web,” the difficult life lessons learned in tree school, the hard-working natural cleanup crews that recycle dying trees, and much more. Beautiful images provide the perfect complement to Wohlleben’s words, with striking close-ups of bark and seeds, panoramas of vast expanses of green, and a unique look at what is believed to be the oldest tree on the planet.

We will discuss the book on Thursday, May 23rd at 7:00 pm at CoG. Please see Janet if you need a copy of the book. Everyone is welcome to read the book and join us for a lively discussion.Please contact Cheryl Nabors with any questions.
