  What starts as a formless mass has its own potential.   The potential to be something unique, perfect and inspiring. In the hands of a craftsman, the formless becomes something with meaning. And even if it has to be tempered under extreme conditions, ultimately, this work-in-progress... Is transformed to become a treasure! Florida Blue Foundation Sapphire Symposium   In much the same way, the four organizations, programs and individuals that will be the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida Foundation’s Sapphire Awards honorees work within their communities, providing expertise and care. They too transform those who have possibly endured extreme hardships into people with their own purpose, made whole with the help of those who cared to become involved. Please join us on February 21-22, 2013, as we recognize these community partners for excellence and innovation in community health and convene with industry leaders to offer an informative symposium. Click here to reserve your spot today! Special thanks to Nathan Nardi, the glass artist and sculptor commissioned to create the Sapphire Award trophy.   When we first commissioned Nathan in 2005, he was a glassblowing instructor at Jacksonville University.  Today, he owns Decatur Glassblowing in Decatur, Georgia. We are indebted to his vision and artistic expression that is so gorgeously fulfilled in the Sapphire Award trophy.
