Four blood drives are scheduled throughout 2013 at the Leander-based Scott & White clinic.

The first blood drive will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 23 at the Leander clinic, 1007 S. US 183, just north of AutoZone. The remaining blood drives this year are scheduled on Aug. 1, Oct. 10 and Dec. 19—all at the same time and place, Scott & White spokeswoman Katherine Voss confirmed.

The primary-care clinic also offers comprehensive, personalized family care and physical therapy services.
