Students highlight the importance of hand hygiene
ATLANTA — A group of 10 students from the Portfolio Center have been working on something called The Hope and Water Project, a multimedia effort to highlight the importance of proper handwashing as it relates to overall health and wellness, according to a press release.
Sponsored by Georgia-Pacific Professional and on display at the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University, The Hope and Water Project was created in conjunction with another Georgia-Pacific Professional-sponsored exhibit known as Watching Hands: Artists Respond to Keeping Well, the release stated.
Bill Sleeper, president of Georgia-Pacific Professional, said, “Georgia-Pacific Professional is excited to support the Portfolio Center on The Hope and Water Project. It is our hope that, by using art to communicate the importance of hand hygiene, both exhibits will work in tandem to raise awareness of this public health issue and promote proper handwashing techniques.”
Watching Hands: Artists Respond to Keeping Well, a collection of works from renowned artists, can be viewed at the David J. Sencer U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Museum, the release noted.
The Hope and Water Project will be on display through the beginning of 2012 and Watching Hands: Artists Respond to Keeping Well runs through January 13, 2012, the release added.
