Gov. Roy Cooper spoke at a press conference with reporters before donating blood. “This change needed to be made for a long time,” said Cooper, joined by DHHS Sec. Kody Kinsley and State Health Director Elizabeth Tilson. “Now the testing that they do screens blood for HIV. We know that blood donations are safe. We need more people to give it, so this is an important day.” Credit: Rachel Crumpler
