FRAMINGHAM, MA - For more than two decades, professionals involved with infection control have dedicated one week of the year as "Infection Prevention Week". Originally the week was spent educating others in health care about the importance of reducing the spread of germs and infection.

Using social networking and online media the pair got a Flashmob together, and here's what they came up with:

What a great use of social networking, music, line-dancing and fun to promote something that could keep us all a little healthier, (especially as we head into the cold and flu season).

Great job to all of you Wash Your Hands dancers!
