Glysomed® Supports Sunnybrook’s Mother’s Day Celebration

As we approach Mother’s Day, Glysomed will be part of a week-long celebration for Moms hosted by Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre.  This celebration is in honour of the hospital’s four-floor expansion in the M-wing area of the facility.  The M-wing unit of Sunnybrook is responsible for the care of infants and their mothers.

Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre is one of Canada’s largest teaching, research and patient care institutions.  Each year, 10,000 staff, physicians, volunteers and students work to improve the lives of patients that come to the hospital.

The Mother’s Day Celebration takes place May 7-13, 2007.  Activities include Mother’s Day Tea, a Children’s Book Reading, and expert discussions on Sexual Health, Planning a Healthy Pregnancy, and Newborns.  “We love being an active part of the community, and when the opportunity to contribute to a meaningful cause arises, we are proud to participate” said Valerie Ryan, Marketing Manager for Glysomed products.

Blistex Corporation gladly donated over 1,000 samples of Glysomed Hand Creams to staff, volunteers, and patients.  Glysomed Gift Baskets filled with Hand Creams, Body Lotion and Foot Balm were also donated for the event.
