Through our Foundation, I chose to spend my energy while off work – outside of my regular, but long work hours – to write the lyrics and music for a song for kids about washing their hands (following all of the proper steps). Our hope is that this fun and educational song will make it easier to remember the best way to get “clean hands”!
We have had this song produced and sung by a professional musician. In addition, we have recorded versions for Country and Western and Rap fans – while teaching everyone how to get truly clean hands!! You might ask, why would a doctor write a song…well, I had planned to major in music in college until I realized I don’t have a lot of raw talent (i.e., I can carry a tune, but my voice is not beautiful), so I changed my major to Biology and decided to become a doctor.

I still love music and writing this song has been an amazing distraction, which has energized and revived me in a way that allows me to continue to work to help my patients and their families. I would love to see how we can work together to help “spread the word about how to STOP spreading germs by washing your hands”!!
I look forward to hearing from you. Here’s a poster you can download that goes along with the song. https://wipediseases.s3.amazonaws.com/WipeDiseasesHands.pdf
