At the next Research on Tap, join us for a discussion about the bloody history of free blood in Canada. Dr. Sarah Glassford, assistant professor of History at UPEI, will lead a discussion entitled "Blood: It's in you to sell. Why Canadians give and get blood for free." The discussion begins at 7 pm on Tuesday, April 8 at the Pourhouse, above The Old Triangle Irish Alehouse in Charlottetown.

In other countries, blood is treated as a commodity, where donors are paid, and blood has cash value. Dr. Glassford will present on the debate that led to our free system, and how Canada almost followed the American model.

Sound interesting? Join us!
