Bone Marrow Donor Registration Drive - The Michigan Medical School Challenge 2020

10/15/2020 - 11/15/2020

Virtual

The 9th annual drive is a virtual challenge among medical schools in Michigan. Adults between the ages of 18 and 44, can sign up for the registry by texting MSOUWB to 61474 to request a swab kit. Upon receiving the kit in the mail, follow the instructions for collecting a sample of cells by swabbing the inside of your cheek. Kits need to be returned through the mail by Nov. 15. 

The sample is used to compare, and ideally match up, specific protein markers with patients who need a bone marrow transplant.
