ELLISVILLE – With flu season upon us many are trying to avoid the annual ‘bug’. To help prevent the flu on campus, Jones County Junior College’s Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society is hosting a free flu prevention workshop featuring Mississippi State Department of Health Medical Officer for District 8, Dr. Thomas Dobbs. The public is invited to attend the presentation on Friday, October 22, at 10:30 a.m. in the Home and Health Services Auditorium at JCJC.
“This is one of our major endeavors for the chapter's Honors in Action project on the prevention and spread of the influenzae virus,” said PTK advisor, Carol Bergin. “In addition to this presentation, hand sanitizers will be distributed to students, and we will provide an opportunity for JCJC students, faculty, and staff to receive flu vaccinations the first week of November.”
JCJC Health Center employees will be on campus doing a special ‘germ demonstration’ on Wednesday, October 27 from 9:30 until 11:30 a.m. Nurse practitioner Diane Spruill and paramedic Kristen Register will be demonstrating the effectiveness of hand sanitizers outside the Student Success Center in the library.
