Overview

While winter may be the worst time for colds, coughs, and flu, teachers are often faced with a wide range of communicable diseases and illnesses year-round. How do we make the health and well-being of our students and ourselves one of the main focuses in our classrooms? Join John Roche, a First Aid Instructor and educator, as he discusses simple steps you can take to help prevent the spread of sickness in your classroom. In addition to discussing basic first aid steps you can take to prevent disease transmission, John will also cover the symptoms of MRSA, influenza, HIV, Hepatitis, and other diseases communicated via blood, air, or surfaces. He will also discuss practical ways to help keep the surfaces in your classroom clean.
