November 14th, 2011 – Group Blue

November 14th, 2011   Group Blue 20111114 NIKON D40 5346 920x212

As part of company wide events scheduled for World Diabetes Day, my coworkers and friends wore blue and take a group photo. We were encouraged to wear light blue clothing to work to help mark the official “Go Blue” day and take a team photo. 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 honored that my friend [Chris](http://twitter.com/imanenigma) 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](http://www.bigbluetest.org/).

My friend [Pamela Howell](http://plus.google.com/115762592480438625977/about) 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. Thanks Pam, but now I feel old.

At 1PM today, my employer hosted a World Diabetes Day “Lunch & Learn” which was broadcast live on our internal streaming video system. Speakers included [John Tsai](http://www.linkedin.com/pub/john-tsai-md/4/98b/ab3), Vice President and Head of U.S. Pharmaceuticals Medical and [Patricia Doykos](http://www.linkedin.com/pub/patricia-mae-doykos/10/752/508), Direct of the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation.[^2]
