Find PC nurses at the fair


Peninsula College’s second-year nursing students will be on hand to offer important health information at the Clallam County Fair from Aug. 15-18.


The student volunteers are donating their time to initiate a community-wide hand hygiene campaign on the North Olympic Peninsula.


The “Seconds of Safety Port Angeles” project is designed to demonstrate how people can effectively clean their hands and when to do so, and develop a general awareness of hand hygiene.


“Hand washing is one of the single most important things a person can do to stay well and it only takes a few seconds,” says nursing student Ryan Dill.


Other student volunteers include Stefanie Carroll, Stacy Forshaw, Melissa Hamilton, Megan Larrechea and Stephanie Speicher. They are being assisted by Peninsula College Nursing Advisor Bonnie Rathod, R.N., M.N.


In addition to the county fair, the nursing students will have their community education table set up at other venues, including Olympic Medical Center and the Specialty Clinic in Sequim.


Organizations interested in having P.C. nursing students present their campaign may call Rathod at 417-6458 or
