Men and Their Hand Washing

At this point, it would be hard not to know that LifeBridge Health is in the midst of a massive hand washing campaign. We've also had great response to our Harris Interactive poll, which shows that when in a public restroom without soap or towels, 74 percent of American adults who use public restrooms would rinse their hands with water and let them air dry.

Sadly, it would be no surprise to learn that researchers report in the American Journal of Public Health that roughly a third of men wash their hands with soap after using a bathroom, versus 64 percent of women.


Today is Global Handwashing Day, and what better way for LifeBridge Health (@LBHealth) to show its support than by hosting a hand washing Tweetup at Little Havana from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.? There will be cool prizes, including a Garmin GPS, a Bodum french press, lots of hand sanitizers, and a chance to meet Sinai's John Cmar, M.D., in person. Come meet the man behind many a flu story!

These handwashing initiatives are wonderful. Hopefully everyone will understand the importance of hand washing and using instant hand sanitizers when soap and water are not available.
