The students in Dara Mendelsohn’s MGH Workplace Education Program’s JVS English Fundamentals class recently put their newly developed language skills to use when they presented a hand hygiene program to their supervisors, instructors and invited guests.

The English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) students – Berhan Giorgis, Fatiha Ngout, Hamid Hassine, Maria Alves, Maria Jimenez, Mina Makane, Seandel Dillon and Sulma Garcia – presented five skits outlining the importance of hand hygiene during the March 28 event. “The students worked very hard to create their
skits and the program flyers, which supported an important message here at MGH that ‘clean hands save lives,’ ” Mendelsohn said. “Their hard work and dedication really shows, and I am so very proud of them.”
