          In the U.S., 10.5 billion trips are made on public transit every year and this number is growing at a record rate. If you are among those billions, it’s pretty much guaranteed that you will be in a crowded rush hour train or bus with someone who is battling a cold or flu. You may curse (internally) the sick riders, but let’s face it, we’ve all been that coughing person with the runny nose. In today’s world, being sick is not an excuse to stay home. HOW CAN WE HELP TRANSIT COMMUTERS STAY A LITTLE HEALTHIER THIS COLD AND FLU SEASON? We set out to understand the science behind the spread of disease as well as the behaviors and motivations of transit riders trying to stay healthy. We interviewed, observed, shadowed, and hashtagged. Learn more about Project Transfer at http://www.gravitytank.com/transfer

              • Most Don’t Wash Hands Properly

                Everybody’s doing it...we hope. But are they doing it right? When it comes to hand washing, studies say ‘no’, which is why experts from Golisano Children’s Hospital are taking their hygiene message to school. “Yes it’s really important. We’re very proactive about hand washing, health in general,” says Julie Briggs, child advocate with Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida. Researchers find most people don’t wash long enough to kill germs, don’t use soap or don’t wash at all. If they only saw this: a rubber ball coated with glow lotion is passed from student to student. It mimics the spread of germs. When the kids put their hands under a UV lamp- the phony germs light up. The result is illuminating. “They’re amazed by that. They don’t see that on an everyday basis. They really get grossed out like ‘oh is that really what’s on my hands every single day’ I think that really gets them thinking,” says Briggs. The CDC offers handy tips for washing. It takes 15-20 seconds of vigorous washing with soap and water to kill germs. That’s how long it takes to sing Happy Birthday twice. Most people, on average, lather and rinse in under six seconds. The hand washing how-to is never more timely than during flu season. “It’s quite quick to spread person-to-person and really move throughout a community in a brief period of time. Whenever you cough or sneeze, little bits of the virus go out get on to somebody else’s hand or shirt or clothes that they then touch to their face and can catch it quite easily,” says Dr. Christy Cavanagh, a family medicine physician with Lee Memorial Health System. If everyone could see it the way a first-grader does, maybe we’d all be a lot healthier. “When kids learn in a fun way they’re more likely to remember it after we leave,” says Briggs.

                      As Southwest Florida hits peak season, and visitors make their way here, they may be giving the flu virus a ticket to spread. Flu season came early this year, but it’s not too late to protect yourself. “Current CDC recommendations are that everybody receives a flu shot. Especially older patients, the very young patients and pregnant patients are at highest risk,” says Dr. Christina Cavanagh, family medicine practitioner with Lee Memorial Health System. This year’s vaccine is doing a good job protecting against three new flu strains: two flu A’s and one flu B. Also new this year is a mini-shot. It’s an intradermal shot the pricks the skin’s surface. “It’s a very, very small needle. It’s supposed to be an ‘ouch’ less version of the flu vaccine. It goes directly under the skin where the cells are that produce that immune response, so you don’t have to get quite as much of the vaccine in there, which is why it’s a small shot,” says Dr. Cavanagh. For children who want no sting at all, last year an inhalable version rolled out. “The flu mist is another option for people who are afraid of needles. It’s indicated for anyone from the age of 2 up to 63 it does have some live virus in the vaccine it has been inactivated so it cannot cause the flu but it is a little bit more likely to cause flu-like symptoms: low grad fever, muscle aches, cough and congestion but generally those symptoms are mild,” says Dr. Cavanagh. Older people can choose to get a high dose vaccine, which its hope will provide enhanced protection. “It has a higher dose of the antigen in it. The thought is that elderly patients don’t have as big of a response against vaccines, so we hope by giving them a bigger dose of the vaccine that they’ll really active their immune system. We won’t know for the next couple of years if it actually works better,” says Dr. Cavanagh. All of the vaccines need about two weeks to take full effect, so health experts agree; the time is now, to give it a shot.
