Happy Friday everyone! I want to use today’s post to remind you about all the important happenings in October. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and also National Dental Hygiene Month. There are all sorts of nationwide events taking place in recognition of both causes. If you’re taking part in any of these events make sure you leave me a comment or send me a message and share what you’re doing to participate. It’s also Halloween this month, so if you’re planning on dressing up for work get your Halloween print scrubs soon! And last, but not least, our monthly Editor @ Large Contest is currently in session. If you haven’t entered yet, click here and do it today!
