Updated:
MIAMI, OKLAHOMA -

Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (NEO) was recently recognized as a Certified Healthy Campus and Business by the Oklahoma State Department of Health for making a positive impact on the health of students, employees and visitors.

The college will be acknowledged at the Certified Healthy Oklahoma luncheon and program in February in Norman, Okla. The organization recognizes certified healthy businesses, communities, schools, campuses and restaurants.

NEO began participating in the Certified Healthy Oklahoma program one year ago and was just notified that the college was given a grade of excellent as a Certified Healthy Campus. This is the first time the college has received this certification.

There are three levels of certification: basic, merit and excellence.

“I am pleased to report that NEO has met the criteria to become a Certified Healthy Campus as issued by the Oklahoma State Department of Health. The Certified Healthy Campus certification recognizes both public and private post-secondary campuses and career technology centers that make a positive impact on the health of students, employees and visitors,” said Evan Jewsbury, director of human resources. “An application that included many different goals and objectives with a strong focus on wellness was required to be completed in order to be considered for certification.”

Jewsbury worked on obtaining the certification for NEO and will accept the award next month.

Prior to the awards luncheon, attendees will have the opportunity to attend a Certified Healthy workshop featuring interactive breakout sessions to work with seasoned awardees on how to implement practices and policies to grow the health of your organization.

Throughout the year, a multitude of health screenings and workshops are offered on NEO's campus as well including cholesterol testing, blood pressure and heart rate monitoring, body mass index testing; tobacco cessation workshops and health risk appraisal. To promote wellness, NEO also offers many different GetFit classes ranging from yoga, Zumba and water aerobics at no charge to students, faculty and staff.
