Hip Hop Hand-Washing PSA Wins Second Annual APIC Film Festival
Ten-year-old twin brothers Jerry and Josie Herman, rapping about proper hand hygiene, won first place in the second annual Film Festival during the 39th Annual Educational Conference & International Meeting of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC). “Scrub-a-Dub Dub” was written and produced by the Creative Services Department at All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg, Fla. The video features former All Children's patient Jerry and his twin brother Josie, also of St. Petersburg. Jerry spent several months in All Children’s ICU almost totally paralyzed by Guillain-Barré Syndrome, a rare autoimmune disorder which affects the nervous system.
