Barco recently partnered with ABC's third hour of Good Morning America, GMA3, to support Bryan Tsiliacos' "30 acts of kindness" campaign. For his 30th birthday, Bryan was determined to deliver his "30 by 30" goal and Barco was proud to help. His most recent good deed coincides with National Nurses Week at Shriners Children’s Hospital/Northern California where 167 nurses were given a set of new Grey's Anatomy by Barco scrubs.
Giving back to nurses was especially important for Tsiliacos — his grandmother Alta May worked as a nurse at Shriners from 1959 to 1986. She was recently honored with a plaque that will be put up on a hospital wall. Alta May Tsiliacos began her career in the Cadet Nurse Corps, a program created to help alleviate the nursing shortage before and during WWII, the plaque said. After training, Alta May worked at various VA hospitals across the East Coast until coming to Shriners, where she was promoted to head nurse of the boys’ ward and worked there until retirement. “It’s just so touching to see her legacy continue to live on through all of you,” Tsiliacos said.
Congratulations Bryan — Barco is proud to support your efforts!
