At SCA, proper hand hygiene is very important to us. Right here in South Glens Falls and Greenwich, we make products that support good hygiene including Tork® towels, tissues and napkins used in public settings such as restaurants, hospitals, schools, offices and sports arenas.

 

To help make teaching hand hygiene easy and memorable, we’ve gathered together some educational resources for you.

 

As a Hygiene expert, authority on disease prevention and member of SCA's Tork Green Hygiene Council, Donna Duberg teaches proper hand hygiene in this 
downloadable video. Donna is an assistant professor in clinical laboratory science at Saint Louis University and is known as the “St. Louis Germ Expert” on local FOX newscasts.

Our local SCA Nurse Judy Schkrioba is available as a guest speaker for select contest participants. A life-long resident of Corinth, she has nearly 30-years experience as a registered nurse and registered occupational health nurse. Judy is also a mother and grandmother, so she knows a thing or two about getting adults and kids to wash their hands. She’d be happy to create a customized lesson to share with your students.
