The University of Tennessee Health Science Center to Raise Funds for Typhoon Haiyan Relief Efforts

The University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) is mobilizing to raise money to aid the victims of Typhoon Haiyan, one of the most powerful typhoons ever recorded when it slammed into the Philippines on Friday. Two fund drives will be held on the UTHSC campus on Wednesday, November 13, with the money going to the American Red Cross for Typhoon Haiyan relief. UTHSC students, faculty and staff; members of the local medical community; and the public are invited to participate. Donations will be taken from 9 to 11 a.m. in the lobby of the General Education Building, 8 South Dunlap, and from noon to 3 p.m. in the lobby of the 930 Madison Plaza Building.
