I am certain that without the SMART Clinic being in our building and having such a tremendously dedicated, caring staff, several students that walked across the stage to get their diplomas this year would not have made it to graduation. – Terry Sterling, Principal, Aliceville High School, Aliceville, Ala.
I immediately thought SMART Student Health and Wellness was evolutionary and revolutionary. I knew my students would benefit from it. Oakman has had great results – my goal is to have a clinic at every school in the district. – Dr. Jason Adkins, Superintendent, Walker County School District, Ala.
The SMART Student Health and Wellness Center is like no other clinic I’ve ever been associated with. They’ve become a true asset to the school, and we’ve experienced significant increases in attendance and Freshman On-Track graduation rates, as well as fewer disciplinary referrals, which in large part, I attribute to their work. – Chad Adams, Principal, Sullivan High School, Chicago
SMART has created a new antecedent component to the health care continuum of care, never before in existence. – Jane Hamilton, MSN, RN, CEO, Partners on the Path
