We are celebrating World Health Day in Live Lab today by looking into the disgusting and amazing world of germs!
300 school children will be visiting At-Bristol to take their health in their hands and discover just how clean they really are! Germs are so easily spread between people and things and this, in turn, spreads infections. The key message of the day is that hand washing is essential and an easy way to prevent the spread of infection.
This special Meet the Expert event is happening today in our new Live Lab area. Debra, a lovely Community nurse from Bristol Community Health, will be holding hand washing sessions with a difference! We probably think we can tell just how clean our hands are by looking at them, after we have washed them we think they are squeaky clean but Debra will be bringing a special light box which will tell us otherwise! We are looking forward to the fun and eeew-some results!
Remember your health is in your hands – just by the simple act of washing your hands you can prevent the spread of most diseases.
Here in At-Bristol, we already hold a number of schools workshops, such as Healthy Bodies and Biomedical Science, which delve into what makes us healthy. Plus with All About Us having just launched our brilliant bodies and what makes us healthy is never far from our thoughts.
We are always looking for more opportunities to get under the skin of health and our bodies – which is why working with NHS Bristol to increase awareness of infections and germs on World Health Day is so great!
