On July 24 after a difficult battle with cancer, our colleague Steve Long passed away. Steve was unmatched in his enthusiasm for being part of the team. "Finding a way to yes" could probably sum up Steve's approach to life. He started his career in hospital pharmacy and was a trailblazer in finding new and creative delivery systems to benefit patients. During his time in government, his approach earned universal respect from all facets of the health profession. This past spring, Steve was bestowed with an Honourary Life Membership in the Alberta College of Pharmacy in recognition of all his contributions. At Global, we were blessed to have a colleague who was always willing to share his knowledge and mentor those of us that were new to the health & pharma world and its complex maze of decision-making. No other team member was so enthusiastic to join for after-work drinks, baby showers, team-building events and, most importantly, a good party. We will miss his kindness, his generous spirit and his care and consideration for others. Most of all, we will miss him as a dear friend and colleague. Our hearts remain with Steve's family and everyone who knew him like we did.
