Healthy Schools, Healthy People


The Healthy Schools, Healthy People program is a joint initiative of the American Cleaning Institute and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The program seeks to improve hand hygiene habits among students through an education-based effort to make hand cleaning an integral part of the school day in an effort to help prevent the spread of infectious disease and reduce related absenteeism.
