 April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and Child Protection Center needs your help to spread the word about breaking the cycle of child abuse. Here’s what you can do: Community members: Dress in blue, have your nails done in blue, get a blue streak in your hair, put blue ribbons on your car, take a picture of your best blue and post it on your Facebook wall.  Be sure to add the hashtag - #GetYourBlueOn and #PaintSRQBlue!  CPC will see it and post it on the “Paint the Town Blue” Facebook page. Share it with your friends. Those with the most ‘Likes’ will be entered into drawings for fun prizes. Businesses:  You can create a blue window display, serve a blue plate special, offer a creative blue drink, have a blue jeans day for staff!  Be creative… do something for a day, a week, or the entire month!  Have a give-back event to CPC or just help spread awareness. Send your ideas or questions to PaintSRQBlue@cpcsarasota.org.

Give Gratitude, Grateful Patient Program

If you have been a patient at Sarasota Memorial, perhaps you can look back to when the care you received exceeded your expectations. Maybe it was kind words from a doctor or nurse, the patience of a technologist who took the time to explain a procedure, or a volunteer, housekeeper or food service
