EMCOR/Poole and Kent Corp. announced on Tuesday, October 3 that its employees, along with those of its clients Bayhealth, and The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company, the entire project work force, and many others, donned pink hard hats and assembled to form EMCOR’s signature giant human Pink Hard Hat Ribbon, in a visible call to action for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and EMCOR’s 9th Annual “Protect Yourself. Get Screened Today.” campaign”. The event was held at Bayhealth’s new Sussex Campus construction site in Milford, DE.
Adam Snavely, President/CEO, Poole and Kent Corp., presented a Pink Hard Hat event plaque to Deborah Watson, FACHE, FACMPE, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Bayhealth, who spoke about the importance of the hospital’s work in the area of breast cancer screening. Adam Snavely also presented an event plaque to Frank Palmer, Executive Vice President of The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company, who spoke passionately in support of breast cancer awareness.
“This is EMCOR’s 9th consecutive year of spearheading the national Pink Hard Hat initiative. Over the years people have come forward to say they believe this unique way of raising awareness of the importance of breast cancer awareness and screening has had a positive impact on their own lives or that of a loved one,” stated Adam Snavely, President/CEO, Poole and Kent, Corp. “Many of our employees wear hard hats on a daily basis for personal protection, and we’re proud of their commitment to wear an EMCOR/Poole and Kent Pink Hard Hat in October to raise awareness for breast cancer, reminding women and men they can help protect themselves by getting screened.”
Participants wore safety pink t-shirts to support Bayhealth’s Go Pink! breast cancer awareness campaign. Funds raised are used to provide breast screenings and education programs offered through Bayhealth and its community partner, the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition (DBCC). Bayhealth is providing free clinical breast exams to patients who are uninsured or underinsured in October. Clinical breast exams can help detect abnormalities in breast tissue and play a role in lifelong breast health. The exams are offered at both Bayhealth Cancer Centers. To register for an appointment, individuals can call Harriet Pinkston at 302-744-6719.
