American Heart Association Recognizes Ohio State as Fit-Friendly Employer

The Ohio State University has been recognized as a 2016 platinum level recipient of the American Heart Association’s (AHA) Fit-Friendly Worksites recognition program. Platinum is the highest level of recognition.

The American Heart Association’s Fit-Friendly Worksites program recognizes employers who champion the health of their employees and work to create a culture of health in the workplace.

Employers throughout the nation can be part of the initiative by making the health and wellness of their employees a priority.

Ohio State has been named a Fit-Friendly Worksite for the seventh year in a row. Initiatives such as promoting a culture of wellness and providing healthy eating options on campus were cited by the American Heart Association in its recognition.

YP4H is Ohio State’s preventative approach for providing faculty, staff, and their enrolled spouses/same-sex domestic partners with the tools and resources for a healthy life.

Ohio State is committed to providing physical activity and wellness opportunities for our employees. For more information on the Fit-Friendly Worksites initiative, or to find out what you can do to incorporate more physical activity into your day, visit heart.org/worksitewellness.
