First Blood Summit

Cagayan de Oro came up with the very first Blood Council in the country and thereafter held the very first Blood Summit ever on June 14, 2012. “Never shall any patient be turned away because of unavailability of blood” is one of the goals of the blood council as it strives to create a system that will make possible the provision of sustainable supply of safe blood for the city’s citizens who might need blood at any time.
