Ireland: 1 in 3 don’t wash hands after toilet

One of my graduate students, Manoelita Warkenten, did a great job this morning presenting a departmental seminar about the use of gross-out information to increase handwashing compliance rates in various settings.

Sarah Reasoner, another of my graduate students, who had already gone through the seminar fire, did an outstanding job prepping Manoelita. I didn’t have to do much. I like it that way.

Irish Health reports today that one in three people in Ireland don’t wash their hands after going to the toilet.

That’s gross.
