This year marks the 10th annual Cupcake Days event at the MGH Blood Donor Center. Anyone who makes a lifesaving blood or platelet donation any Thursday in February – Feb. 13, 20 or 27 – will enjoy a delicious cupcake and receive a long-sleeved T-shirt.
A new online MGH Blood Donor Center portal is now live.
“This portal was designed specifically for donors to make giving blood as easy and efficient as possible – for visits to both the Blood Donor Center in the Gray/Jackson Building or at one of the bloodmobiles,” says Kim Cronin, manager of MGH Blood Donor Services. “You can make your appointments and check your donor profile in a few clicks from a mobile device or desktop computer.”
Key features of the new software are online appointment scheduling, eligibility dates, access to health history vitals, and records of past and future appointments. Other highlights include email reminders for appointments, donation experience surveys and a customizable interface to adjust settings and notifications.
Visit blooddonor.massgeneral.org to create an account. Users will need a unique Donor ID number. Call 617-724-9699 or email MGHBloodDonorCenter@Partners.org for more information or to receive a Donor ID.
