One goal of SSOE’s Working Well Program is to raise employee health awareness. We have chosen to promote the highest risk areas in our company during National Health Awareness months. The first one recognized in 2014 was Colon Cancer Awareness Month. In late 2013, we lost a dear colleague, Dave DiPofi, to Colon Cancer. As part of the awareness campaign, we posted informational articles on Colon Cancer Awareness and asked for donations to the Colon Cancer Alliance in memory of Dave and others who have had, or are currently suffering from, colon cancer. During our first awareness campaign we were able to raise $2,780; it is great to know that colleagues are willing to donate their hard earned money to help raise awareness.
