On your marks, get set... Mustache!

Last week, the "Pink October" campaign organized by the association Ruban Rose came to an end. This month, EMOSIS would like to support another initiative. Indeed, November announces the beginning of the "Movember" campaign! This is an annual event organized by the Movember Foundation Charity. Since 2003, this Australian foundation has taken up the challenge of "changing the face of men's health"!

Each year, men around the world are invited to grow a moustache to raise awareness and funds for research into men's diseases such as prostate and testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.

On this occasion the EMOSIS logo is growing a mustache! 👨

Pink, the other color(s) of blood 🎗

Every year since 1994, October marks the start of the "Pink October" communication campaign organized in France by the Pink Ribbon association.

This campaign is designed to raise public awareness of breast cancer screening and to raise funds for medical and scientific research. On this occasion, pink becomes the chosen color among the other colors of blood.

It is important to remember that breast cancer is the most lethal cancer among women. Let's mobilize! 🎗

A key date

October 13th was chosen for World Thrombosis Day because it’s the date-of-birth of Rudolf Virchow born in 1821. He was a German physician who pioneered in the pathophysiology of thrombosis. He even defined the original concept of "thrombosis" and notably advanced our understanding of this disorder.

Thrombosis keys facts

Thrombosis is the formation of potentially life-threatening blood clots in arteries (arterial thrombosis) or veins (venous thrombosis). The severity of thrombosis comes from the obstruction of the blood flow in organs. Thrombosis is the often preventable disorder that underlies pathology the three major cardiovascular killers : heart attack, thromboembolic stroke, and venous thromboembolism (VTE).

A logo with a funny story

It is interesting to note that WTD logo was designed by a patient. In fact, when WTD was created, Angchaisuksiri, a member of the WTD steering committee from Thailand, invited his patient Ekawat Suwantaroj to create a symbol for the first campaign. Thus, the artery is represented in red, the vein in blue and the clot with a white circle. This design is now used all over the world !
