Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center Provides Handwashing Lesson at Heuvelton School

- Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center and Heuvelton Central School’s fourth grade Mad Scientists recently teamed up to tackle handwashing.  On hand from Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center to work with the children were Dr. Kome Oseghale, pediatrician at Claxton-Hepburn, and Michele Catlin, community outreach coordinator.  Dr. Oseghale and Catlin provided demonstrations on proper handwashing and why it is important, and when to wash your hands.  The children were then able to demonstrate their handwashing effectiveness using Glo-Germ solution, a germ simulating gel to show that clean hands may not be clean after all, and an ultraviolet light.  Claxton-Hepburn will also be providing the Mad Scientist students lab coats.  Shown in the photo with the fourth grade is Mrs. Catlin at right and Dr. Oseghale at left.
