Castle Medical | #ALSIceBucketChallenge: EMPLOYEES get creative to SHOW THE LOVE

By: Daniel Battaglia | Tags: Be Of Service, Community, Corporate Responsibility

[Smyrna, GA] Castle Medical employees couldn't back down when challenged to take the #ALSIceBucketChallenge in support of www.ALSA.org and research to develop a cure for Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease."

ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord and can affect anyone.

Some employees were challenged seperately and decided to participate as a team on behalf of Castle Medical. On a hot summer day in Atlanta many were actually looking forward to an ice cold shower, although they would soon be singing a different tune. It was well worth it for a good cause.

By: Daniel Battaglia | Tags: Fun Company, Employee Outing, Flash Mob

[Fairburn, Georgia] Employees from Castle Medical were spotted at the Georgia Renaissance Festival, a yearly family-fun filled event with a medieval theme that brings out the fun in anyone. They weren't only there to enjoy the atmosphere, games and shows as was evident when they decided to add to the fun and excitement of the event.

As Pharell's "Happy" begins to play from a boombox, twenty-five employees (and family and friends) began a dance routine that surprised a few unsuspecting festival goers.

Quickly though, as you can see in the video, employees of the fair, kids, teens and parents joined in on the fun and were left with smiles and a story.

A Humble Opinion | The Truth About Drug Abuse

By: Stephanie Christianson | Keywords: Drug Abuse & Education, Corporate Leadership

[Smyrna, GA] What began as a fun, meaningful and unique tool to help promote drug abuse awareness and education was faced with mixed reviews. Beyond the initial "flash and bang" of the public's response to the distribution of material relating to drug testing, a watershed moment was sincerely underscored. The right time and place for drug abuse education remains a nuanced conversation and one that solicits a myriad of reviews from people across the country.

It takes a cursory glace over social media to see what people felt. Whether it was negative or positive, it represents that the question is very much alive.

When do we educate the youth in this country about drug abuse? The answer is complex, and there is no perfect answer. What is clear is that there are a variety of options to address a widely acknowledged concern of parents nationwide. The State of California participated in a comprehensive polling of issues pertaining to adversity and concerns related to the youth population. The illicit use of drugs was rated in one of the top spots at a dramatic 26%.

This trend, diagnosed in 2012, has only grown since then and can be applied to populations throughout [...]

The Media And The Beast | #UrineTheNews

By: Daniel Battaglia | Keywords: #truthiness, Corporate Responsibility, Media

[Smyrna, GA] Every year approximately 1.2 Million people make the journey from their normal, chaotic and often stressful lives to, well, destress. They go to N'awleans for some R&R, some Raunchy & Risque. There is no telling what you will see (we'll spare you any visuals that might offend) and it isn't always, shall we say kid-friendly. It is, however for those who enjoy having a good time, those who want to have fun and witness the unexpected.

As an organization it is our duty to be truthful and honest and we intend to do just that. Unfortunately for us, the news has taken the opposite angle, one in which parents were "outraged" and "startled" as a police investigation was underway. That we commited a "renegade" and "unnaproved" act and were now "banned" from future parades in New Orleans.

Contrary to reports given by the media, the "throws" were pre-approved by parade coordinators prior to arriving in New Orleans. In fact, it was discussed quite thoroughly as to the shape and nature of the "promotional" drug screen specimen cup and the "contents" of which would be a drug testing strip.

Furthermore, we had inspectors board our floats prior to departure onto the parade route and who would have witnessed 15 bins filled with said [...]
