Nicholson Blood Drive Dedication

On July 26th at 10am, The Blood Connection will be dedicating our newest donation bus to Trooper Eric Nicholson, who was shot and killed in the line of duty in 2000 in Greenville. The bus will be officially named “Eric” in the same parking lot where he was killed almost 20 years ago. A blood drive will follow the event at 10:30am.

Officer Eric Nicholson

Trooper Nicholson’s death was a big shock to the community. Coincidentally, one of his last acts of kindness was donating blood. His wife, Misty, has been passionate about spreading the message of blood donation throughout the community since his death. She will be in attendance at the dedication, along with law enforcement officers, and other local leaders. This event not only recognizes a community hero, but also shines a light on the risk and sacrifice that local law enforcement officers face every day.

From shark attacks to flesh eating bacteria to nasty germs in pools, local doctors with American Family Care (AFC) are setting the record straight about scary scenarios that could land you in either urgent care or an emergency room this summer.

“People are frightened and we’re answering a lot of questions about summer scares and sicknesses, so we need to separate the facts from the fiction,” says Dr. Benjamin Barlow, chief medical officer of American Family Care, a national healthcare network with local medical clinics.  “We’re hearing things like ‘Will a shark attack me and my family? ‘,  ‘Is my neighborhood pool safe or will it make me sick?’ People need to understand the truth about the  health risks that sometimes are valid but often are greatly exaggerated.”
