LNMS Welcomes Dr. Srao to Present at Coffee with the Principal on February 17, 2012

Dr. Srao had an interesting topic for discussion. Her focus on good health and hygiene served to remind parents and staff members that they set the example for children. She reminded them that simple habits can prevent the spread of infection through disease and increase longevity. Maintaining open lines of communication about one's changing body was advised to be discussed in a supportive, non-offensive manner.

Other important tips included to remind teens to:
*Wash hands frequently with soap for at least 15 seconds
*Bathe regularly
*Brush and floss teeth to remove harmful bacteria
*Sneeze into one's elbow to avoid spreading germs from hand to other objects
*Have the right tools (items not to be shared) on hand in a convenient area (brush, toothbrush, razors, soap, deodorant, nail trimmers, etc.

Parents were also able to see pictures of MRSA bacterial infections. These infections are resistant to certain antibiotics and may cause skin and other infections.

Thank you for taking time to reinforce key ideas at LNMS, Dr. Srao!
