As part of company-wide events scheduled for World Diabetes Day, my coworkers and friends were encouraged to wear light blue clothing to work and take a team photo to help mark the official “Go Blue” day. Each team that submits a photo will have a chance to win a health-themed group lunch. The winning photo will be published on the company intranet.1
Some of my colleagues work remotely and are only in the office a few times a week so I felt honoured that my friend Chris took the effort to drive the almost two hours from his home, just for the group photo. As you can see, I used the opportunity to raise awareness of the Big Blue Test.
My friend Pamela Howell sent me an email reminding me that New Order has a song called, Blue Monday which reminded me of course of the Erasure song, Blue Savannah.
At 1 PM today, my employer hosted a World Diabetes Day "Lunch & Learn" which was broadcast live on our internal streaming video system. Speakers included John Tsai, Vice President and Head of U.S. Pharmaceuticals Medical and Patricia Doykos, Direct of the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation.
