Established in 1992, South Asian Marrow Association of Recruiters (SAMAR) is a community based Network member of the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP).
The Mission Statement for SAMAR is "To create an informed society of individuals who would make a conscious decision to become committed volunteer marrow/blood stem cell donors and be available to donate marrow/blood stem cells if they match a patient."
Each Chapter and Colony of Delta Sigma Iota works very hard with SAMAR and other organizations in the NMDP to organize and execute Bone Marrow Drives and fundraising events to raise awareness of SAMAR and NMDP. Our goal is to recruit new members in the community to join the registry in efforts to possibly save a man or woman in need of bone marrow.
Only with Consent
In 2016, Delta Sigma Iota partnered up with Only with Consent. This organization is dedicated to stopping sexual violence through consent and health education by providing resources to young people so that they can make healthy choices. Our goal is to help change rape culture and stigmas among collegiate men by spreading awareness on and off our local campuses.
