Turn Your ICU Blue on May 17th!

The Southeast Chapter would like to invite you to join us in celebrating National Critical Care Awareness and Recognition Month (NCCARM) and Turn your ICU Blue Day on May 17th.

To celebrate, we encourage you to buy blue treats, food, and decorations to recognize the efforts of critical care staff. The Southeast Chapter will again distribute funds for reimbursement to each participating institution. Once we know how many people are interested in joining, we will be able to determine the amount we can offer for reimbursement. Participating hospitals must be within the Southeast Chapter region and the person requesting funds for their institution must be a chapter member.

If you are interested in participating, please fill out THIS FORM by April 17th.
Don’t forget to wear blue and share your photos using #blueicu and @sesccm.
