Pink Glove Photo Competition

Medline’s corporate mission is to improve the lives of patients and people by creating breast cancer awareness and promoting early detection. Back in 2009, Medline Industries, Inc. turned everyday exam gloves from green to pink and launched a breast cancer awareness campaign.

This year Medline made a very conscious decision to create more awareness for breast cancer through launching a Pink glove Photo competition.
