The Business of Healthcare with Tara Humphrey


Nov 11, 2021

Welcome back to The Business of Healthcare Podcast episode 178 where this week I am talking to Louise Clague who is the Donor Recruitment Manager for DKMS. They are an international charity dedicated to the fight against blood cancer and blood disorders.  

I am so proud to be an ambassador for DKMS and what they stand for and it great having the opportunity to speak to Louise to spread the message about how important it is to raise awareness to become part of the registry.

“The problem that we've got is only 2% of the population are on that register and yet every 20 minutes somebody is diagnosed with a type of blood cancer”. Louise Clague - DKMS
