When Baxter celebrated its 70th anniversary, the company launched its Young Artist Contest Imagine My Future to encourage young patients to visualize their dreams and inspire hope for their own tomorrow. The winning artwork becomes the cover of Baxter’s holiday card which is shared with hospital customers, home patients and many other contacts across the country. Last year, Baxter partnered with all Peel hospitals to run the young artist contest. For 2011, Baxter is partnering with ErinoakKids.
