Excerpt from Joanne Creighton’s (Mount Holyoke College President) message to the College community on Swine Flu Prevention:

“Frequent hand washing with soap and water when possible or use of hand sanitizers. Hand washing should last through one singing of “Happy Birthday.”

A JOY (Jemila-Otema-Yaba) Production:

Please note: There are other ways to prevent swine flu, but the producers figured this is one of the most basic ones that everyone can partake in, hence the focus on hand washing. Contact your nearest clinic for additional info on Swine Flu symptoms and prevention.

  1. Hi, Jemila!

    Wow. This is my new favorite thing that Creighton has ever said. I’ll have to start paying more attention to her emails…

    It’s so interesting to see what staff writers publish online. I look forward to following your blog.
