Give a pint ~ Get a pound

You give us a pint of blood and we'll give you a pound of delicious Dunkin' Donuts® coffee!

Dunkin' Donuts is teaming up with the Southcoast Blood Bank at St. Luke's Hospital to encourage local residents to donate blood.

In January, anyone who donates blood at the Southcoast Blood Bank at St. Luke's Hospital or at any Southcoast Blood Bank site or blood drive will receive a certificate for a pound of Dunkin' Donuts coffee. Coupons are redeemable at any Dunkin' Donuts shop.

Weight Loss Surgery

Some 400,000 Americans die prematurely each year of obesity-related complications such as high blood pressure and diabetes.

Southcoast's community-based gastric bypass program is designed to incorporate a thorough approach to weight loss surgery with a team that includes dieticians, psychologists and surgeons to provide a safe and comprehensive surgical weight loss program.

Potential patients must attend a free informational session that is held monthly to provide information about gastric bypass surgery and explain the risks and benefits.

Upcoming seminars:

    Thursday, January 13 ~ Wareham

    Tuesday, January 18 ~ North Dartmouth
