March Madness: Blood Donation Version

VPH and VUH to square off in final round

The winners of the first round of the Blood Donation March Madness, VPH and VUH, will square off against each other in the final round. Call it May Madness.

From now through May 13, employees who give blood at a Blood Assurance or American Red Cross drives may vote for the team of their choice at the time of donation, or by self-reporting the donation on the honor system to Even those who don’t work directly for one of these entities can vote for their favorite team, and donations may also be given at satellite locations.

Will it be Shon Dwyer, President of Vanderbilt University Hospital (VUH) giving Mary Pawlikowski, President of the Vanderbilt Psychiatric Hospital (VPH), a pie in the face, or vice-versa? Your donation may determine the answer.

When you give blood, share your selfie and tag @VUMCHealth on Twitter or @VanderbiltHealth on Facebook and Instagram.
