HELPING HANDS: Hospice staff workers in Manhattan are getting a new uniform, thanks to Pratt Institute junior Hannah Ross, who recently won a design contest to give workers in the Visiting Nurse Service of New York’s Hospice and Palliative Care program a new look. The Brooklynite’s winning design is made of organic cotton in and was inspired by street artist Banksy’s image of a doctor holding a stethoscope. Ross outdid 21 other fashion design students to win the honor, she earned a $2,500 scholarship from the VNSNY. Second place went to Jefferson Musanda who went with a sea foam green stretch cotton top and lavender cotton bottoms. And third-place winner Alicia Arlotta used her color therapy research in deciding to use what are supposed to be the most healing hues — light green and beige.
