University of North Dakota has been recognized as a Platinum-Level Fit-Friendly Worksites by the American Heart Association for helping employees eat better and move more.
UND leaders and employees will accept the award from the American Heart Association on Monday, Oct. 15, just before University President Robert Kelley and First Lady Marcia Kelley lead employees to the Grand Opening of the indoor walking paths through the parking ramp stairwells and skywalks. The event will begin promptly at 11:30 a.m., in Swanson Hall, along University Avenue next to the Memorial Union, with a brief presentation of the award.
UND will be accepting its fifth Platinum-level award and is the only entity in the state to receive platinum status. The award is given for meeting criteria in the areas of physical activity, nutrition, having a culture of wellness and increasing the number of employees that participate in worksite wellness.
