That flu bug

A couple years ago Sue Chamberlain, CGH’s Infection Control Program Director, accompanied by a cart full of supplies, appeared at my office door.

“Did you get your flu shot?” she asked, knowing the answer. Then she admonished me: “You have to set an example.” So I signed the consent, rolled up my sleeve, and had the shot.

I have been, uh, setting an example ever since.

This fall Sue is again leading the charge to inoculate the maximum number of hospital staff, and this time she’s enlisted the help of Dan Cameron, graphic designer.

Dan created his own version of the flu bug, as displayed on posters around the hospital and on computer splash screens. He's even included that flu bug in the hospital’s logo. Gone is the disc fir trees, symbolic of our beautiful campus. That disc in the logo has been replaced by a flu bug in surrender!

The next time flu shots will be offered for CGH employees: 6:30 - 10:00 a.m., November 2, in the Employee Health Office.
