Buckeye Wellness Tips

Avoid colds and the flu with good hand washing

 Hand washing is the single most important way to prevent the spread of infection, especially with cold and flu season upon us. It is important to wash your hands frequently, such as before eating and before and after caring for someone who is sick. Even though there is evidence to support the benefits of hand washing, it is not a routine habit for many people. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol. Teach and encourage those around you to wash their hands frequently as well. To learn more, visit

Buckeye Wellness Tips are brought to you by University Chief Wellness Officer and Dean of the College of Nursing Bernadette Melnyk, in partnership with Your Plan for Health.
