“SNAP Health Center is an invaluable part of my Health Office. The program is so user friendly that training new staff members on documentation takes no time at all. The ability to easily document all visits, medications, screenings, and immunizations is so necessary in a busy office. Gathering data for meetings or reports is so simple with SNAP. Having SNAP Health Office allows me to spend more time with the students and less time worrying about documentation.”
— Colleen Nigzus, RN, MSN, Nurse Leader, Harvard Public Schools, MA
