Dr. Hillyer Films Segment Encouraging Blood Donation with Telecare
Recently, Dr. Hillyer filmed a segment for Telecare’s Lifestyles at the Heart of Health about the importance of donating blood. The segment, which will air in the fall, was done in partnership with Catholic Health Services and the Diocese of Rockville Centre. Dr. Hillyer spoke about the importance of donating blood and the vital role that NYBC plays in our community. His sentiment was echoed by Radhika Sawh, a thalassemia patient who has received over 1,200 donations in her life, who also appeared on the show.
The show also included an interview with Christine Hendricks, Vice President of Public Relations for Catholic Health Services. Ms. Hendericks has been a strong supporter of NYBC for many years as the corporate champion of the Catholic Health System Blood Program and as a Volunteer Leader. She was awarded the “Heroglobin” award this year for her outstanding service and dedication to NYBC.
The Catholic Health System and the Diocese of Rockville Centre together donate more than 15,000 donations. In addition to Ms. Hendricks, Bishop William Murphy of the Diocese of Rockville Centre serves as a Volunteer Leader.
