Program Description

Event Details

We all know that germs make us sick, but what has the most germs? Does washing your hands actually help? What about brushing your teeth? Does your phone or the bottom of your shoe have more germs? Come test it out in this disgustingly scientific program! We will also be discussing Dr. Hildrus Poindexter, who was one of the first Black microbiologists and the first Black Diplomate of the ABMM (American Board of Medical Microbiology.) 



The library makes every effort to ensure our programs can be enjoyed by all. Please contact the library if you have any concerns about accessibility or need to inquire about specific accommodations.
