Throughout November, fifteen male Agfa employees from around the UK and Ireland sprouted a moustache or “Mo” as part of the Movember initiative. Movember challenges men to grow a moustache for the 30-days of November, thereby changing their appearance in aid of men’s prostate and testicular cancer and mental health. As an independent global charity, Movember’s vision is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health.
From the 1st of Movember, with a clean-shaven face, the fifteen started their Mo growing journey. Through their growing efforts they raised awareness for the often ignored issues of men’s health, by prompting conversations (and lots of laughter).
Early in November at EHI Live delegates also had the chance to get involved by having their photos taken holding comedy moustaches on iPads using our Image Capture tool with the images being transferred and displayed on a large screen using IMPAX Agility.
Paul Jackson, Marketing Manager for Agfa HealthCare UK & Ireland commented, “Take up and support has been amazing. What started as a conversation between a couple of employees has literally grown and grown with the current total now standing at over £1,400, which is fantastic.”
