Healthy Schools, Healthy People It's a SNAP!

Healthy School Healthy People in-school handwashing award program

The "Healthy Schools, Healthy People" handwashing program is a joint initiative of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Cleaning Institute. The School Network for Absenteeism Prevention (SNAP) program seeks to improve hand hygiene habits among students to help prevent the spread of infectious disease and reduce related absenteeism. SNAP is a grassroots, education-based effort to improve health by making hand cleaning an integral part of the school day.
