We wish to thank Crittenton Hospital for sponsoring our event and providing MIOCA with its first billboards! Dr. Gelman and Karen Pfeffer RN also added their expertise to the event. We also appreciate C & G Newspapers' help with local newspaper advertising and Channel 7 ABC WXYZ Action News for the invitation to talk about our event with JoAnne Purtan and Glenda Lewis. The support from the Village of Rochester Hills and its merchants and restaurants provided many teal shopping, dining discounts and treats to those who attended.
