Halmos Biology Faculty and Students Featured on Telemundo

Torruellas Garcia Telemundo SharkbyteAt the beginning of February, Halmos College faculty member Julie Torruellas Garcia, Ph.D. was interviewed by Telemundo for a series of segments called “Amenaza Escondida”. These segments about hidden threats will appear on the news show “Al Rojo Vivo” on Wednesdays, 4-5 p.m., from February 7 – 28. Each week there will be a discussion on the results of bacteria found in various places.

These areas: movie theaters, changing tables, malls, and coffee makers were swabbed for the presence of S. aureus and E. coli by Dr. Torruellas Garcia’s independent study/Internship students. Students involved are Biology majors Miguel Portales Guemes, Samir Nacer, Michael McDonough, and Alina Philp. Portales Guemes, Nacer, and McDonough are also in the Farquhar Honors College.
