Visitor aims to keep Paternoville healthy

University Park, Pa. -- Margaret Spear, director of University Health Services, was up at Paternoville on Thursday, with 200 flu kits to distribute to the students tenting in advance of this weekend's Penn State football game vs. Akron. The kits included information about H1N1, as well as a bottle of hand sanitizer. Spear emphasized to the students that frequent hand-washing is the most effective habit people can perform to help curb the spread of the flu. She added that although it will be challenging, the Centers for Disease Control strongly recommends that sick individuals self-isolate, or stay away from healthy people.
