Candi Gordon, left, and Madison Hansen, center, fourth grade students at Westminster Academy look at how well they washed their hands with University of Southern Mississippi nursing student Imari McGhee during a health fair conducted Sept. 26 by students from Southern Miss Gulf Coast School of Nursing.

After holding a tennis ball coated in a special glow-in-the-dark powder, the elementary school students were sent to wash their hands. When the students returned, McGhee and other nursing students used black lights to show areas on the students’ hands and wrists where they may have missed washing off some of the powder. Along with learning proper hand-washing techniques, the Westminster Academy students had their hearing and vision tested. (Southern Miss Public Relations photo by Charmaine Williams)
