Educational Presentations

Educational presentations available

Has your team been looking for a way to make a difference in the community? Do you offer incentives for employees who volunteer? Are you curious about blood donation? Whatever your reason, we would love to connect with you.

Stanford Blood Center offers free educational presentations to organizations, schools, and community groups located in the Bay Area. We can travel to your location, or are happy to host you at one of our donor center locations.

What is included in the presentation?

The presentation can be tailored to the audience and can discuss such topics as:

  • Addressing the Reasons Why People Don’t Donate Blood
  • Patient Stories
  • Fears About Donating Blood
  • Reasons Why You Should Donate
  • Preparing to Donate Blood
  • Blood 101
  • The Life of Blood: How Your Blood Gets Processed and Tested

Presentations can vary in length from 10 minutes to one hour. We recommend a 20-30 minute presentation for most groups.

To schedule a presentation for your group, please contact Victoria Somerville at or call 650-725-2540.

We look forward to partnering with you!
