MEDIC Regional Blood Center says it is experiencing a critical need for blood types O-Postive, O-Negative, A-Positive, and A-Negative. Eligible blood donors are encouraged to stop by one of MEDIC’s four fixed-site Donor Centers (Downtown Knoxville – 1601 Ailor Avenue…Farragut – 11000 Kingston Pike…Athens – 213 E.
