And in the forefront of action.
Now, the Red Cross you told me last year had become interested,
and what are they doing with their chapters?
Well, with their chapters they take people's pressure before
they give blood; and if they find their pressure is high, they give
them some advice about where to go to get treatment. They don't
treat themselves. They don't have anybody there. They really should
have a doctor from the community who would know a lot about it
and treat them right where they give the blood if they find the
blood pressure high. It should be treated right where they are.
And of course they have a large number of people coming in and out.
Yes, and that's not their main purpose -- treatment. Their main
purpose is to collect the blood.
Now they're talking about having more interest in health
aspects in the Red Cross. They have a whole big new statement
about their interest in health and health education and so on.
They could have done that years ago.
They could work hand in hand now with the Ad Council, couldn't
