University recognized two years in a row

KIRKSVILLE, Mo. (May 21, 2008 ) – A.T. Still University was recognized as a Gold Level Recipient of the American Heart Association’s Start! Fit-Friendly Companies Recognition program in April. The University joins an elite group of AHA awardees who have created a culture of physical importance in the workplace. This is the second year in a row ATSU has received Fit-Friendly recognition.

The Start! Fit-Friendly Companies Program, sponsored nationally by SUBWAY® Restaurants, Healthy Choice® and AstraZeneca, is a catalyst for positive change in American business. Companies throughout the nation can be part of the Start! Movement by demonstrating progressive leadership by making the health and wellness of their employees a priority.

ATSU was recognized as a Gold Level Start! Fit Friendly Company for fulfilling the following parameters:

  • Offering employees’ physical activity support
  • Increasing healthy eating options at the worksite
  • Promoting a wellness culture
  • Implementing at least nine criteria as outlined by the AHA in the areas of physical activity, nutrition, and culture

“We are extremely honored and very excited to be recognized by the American Heart Association. Physical activity and employee wellness are very important priorities at ATSU,” said Dan Martin, director of ATSU’s Thompson Campus Center.

American Heart Association representative Rebecca Collier presented Martin with the 2008 gold plate to be placed on the University’s Fit-Friendly Plaque on April 11.
