‘HAND’IWORK — Mallory Cathey, a specialist with the Pennyrile Allied Community Services/Nutrition Outreach and Wholeness (PACS/NOW) program, recently helped students at Carr Elementary School in Fulton use a black light to show the effects of good hand-washing practices. The Germ Busters program, presented by PACS/NOW, is designed to educate individuals on proper hand-washing techniques and to help prevent the spread of germs from one person to another. The PACS/NOW team uses fake “germ” lotion and a black light to demonstrate where germs are most likely to be on hands. After viewing a demonstration of the proper steps to hand washing, participants then wash their hands. After this experiment, students look under the black light again to see how well they washed their hands. Ms. Cathey and Wilma Smith presented the program at Carr for K-6 students. It was noted that students, as well as the teacher, thoroughly enjoyed the program.
