Blood Drive In Memory of Amanda Kundrat

The Graduate Students of the Department of Communication at the University of Arizona are hosting what we hope will become our first annual memorial blood drive in honor of Amanda Kundrat joining the long running blood drive hosted by the Penn State Communication Arts and Sciences grads and faculty. Our blood drive takes place Thursday, April 6, 2017 near the Communication Building (between Centennial Hall and Social Sciences). Look for the Bloodmobile.

Thank you!

The first blood drive in honor of Amanda was held in 2003 at Penn State. Amanda was a PhD student at Penn State studying health communication, stigma, and invisible illnesses when she died (January, 2003) from complications during surgery. She made a deep impression on our hearts and continues to do so. By continuing and expanding the annual memorial blood drive, we wish to continue to bring relevance to the communities, lives, friends, and family that we serve when we donate blood.
