For the fourth year in a row, Medline is hosting the Pink Glove Photo Competition (PGPC)! This competition invites healthcare workers across Europe to take creative photos of themselves wearing Medline’s Generation Pink Nitrile Exam Gloves for the chance to win a donation in their name to a European breast cancer charity or organisation.
The PGPC is one of the many ways that Medline contributes to breast cancer awareness and funding. This year’s competition will also see three winners. Registration opens on 1 May, so keep an eye on our Facebook page or your inbox for more information.
Over the past three years, we have celebrated winners from France, Spain, Italy and Greece. Will your country be next?
The UK donation committee again fielded suggestions from colleagues for an organisation to support in 2018. The nomination that stood out the most was the Nightingale Centre at Wythenshawe Hospital, Europe’s first purpose-built breast cancer prevention centre. This cause is close to the hearts of many in the UK/Ireland office who have lost loved ones or have friends fighting this disease.
The Nightingale Centre is a state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment centre that also focuses on breast cancer research. The facility was specially designed with its patients in mind with its light and airy architecture. This centre is also dedicated to addressing the shortage of breast cancer specialists by providing specialised training and conducts numerous research projects to better predict and prevent this disease.
The United Kingdom donation committee is pleased to be able to contribute to such a worthy cause.
