SVMH Summer Health Institute underway
Monterey Herald

After heating a large bowl of chocolate, Hartnell nursing instructor Toni Gifford pours some for the students sitting around the lab’s table.

The students, who are participating in a five-week long Summer Health Institute, have a mission. First, they have to dip strawberries, pretzels and almonds in the chocolate. Then, they have to spread chocolate all over their hands until they’re completely covered. Last, they have to slip on sterile surgical gloves, making sure none of the chocolate stains the outside of the gloves.
