Halmos Biology Faculty Featured on Telemundo

JTG Telemundo

On November 1, Halmos College faculty member Julie Torruellas Garcia, Ph.D. was interviewed by Telemundo for a series of segments called “Amenazas Escondidas” or Hidden Threats on the new show “Al Rojo Vivo”. On that episode, she investigated the amount and types of bacteria that can be found on the bottom of your shoes and whether or not you should take off your shoes before walking around inside your house.

Three more episodes are scheduled for the next 3 Thursdays (Nov. 8, 15, and 22) and will discuss household mold, the importance of wearing socks when trying on shoes at the store and facts and myths about bathroom germs (i.e. can you get an STD from sitting on the toilet?). The show airs across the US and Latin America.
