Thank you Arkansas Blood Institute! And Thank you to all who donated!

Posted on: January 20, 2021

 

Arkansas Blood Institute would like to send our heartfelt thanks to you for your recent blood drive. The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted the blood supply for months, and we are grateful that you hosted this essential blood drive to ensure that patients across the region receive the lifesaving blood they need when they need it.   Your organization is to be commended for stepping up to give during this difficult time. 33 signed up to donate on 12/23/2020, and 32 were able to do so – each one of them saving up to three lives! Your organizations blood donors are heroes for local families who may be spending time in the hospital with their loved ones.   You may wish to let donors know that they could receive a personal message of appreciation from their blood recipient through the Thank the Donor™ program. Thank the Donor™ allows blood recipients to e-mail thank you messages, photos, and videos to their individual donors, while maintaining privacy. Messages, such as the one below, are received by blood donors through Thank the Donor™:

Because blood is perishable and needed every two seconds by patients like the one pictured above, Arkansas Blood Institute depends on your generous partnership to continue our lifesaving mission.   We thank you again and look forward to planning more successful blood drives in the future.   Sincerely,       Erin Goff Arkansas Blood Institute Account Consultant

COVID-19 Positive Test Support Groups

Posted on: June 26, 2020

 

COVID-19 Positive Test Support Groups Arkansas Department of Health

Registration is now open for new tele-health support groups for Arkansas residents who have tested positive for COVID-19.

These groups will offer support for Arkansans in an anonymous, secure setting, while they remain in the safety of their homes. Our hope is to allow a safe place for participants to share their fears and anxiety as well as gain strength and encouragement from each other. 

Participants will be encouraged to offer support to each other and to share ideas for ways to cope with their feelings in a healthy and positive way.

These meetings are not medical advice, group therapy or intended for any type of mental health diagnosis or treatment. Participants may be referred or encouraged to seek counseling if appropriate, but this is not a treatment group. Any identified needs for a higher level of intervention will be quickly addressed and referred to the appropriate place, such as the patient’s primary care physician.
