RSU Certified as an Oklahoma Healthy Business for Fourth Consecutive Year

Rogers State University recently received recognition as an Oklahoma Certified Healthy Business from the Turning Point Oklahoma Council for the fourth consecutive year.

The Oklahoma Certified Healthy Businesses Program seeks to recognize those businesses and organizations that are working to improve Oklahoma's health status by providing health and wellness opportunities for their employees.

"We are happy to be recognized for the health promotion work we do on campus in an effort to keep students, staff and faculty healthy," said Lisa Martin, director of the RSU Student Health Center and registered nurse.

Martin said the Health Center offers a variety of services to the campus including flu shots, cancer screenings, cholesterol screenings, as well as walk-in doctor visits.

Oklahoma's Turning Point Council was created in 1998 and is acknowledged as a national model for involving the efforts of organizations, communities and consumers to maintain and improve the health of Oklahoma's citizens.

Martin traveled to Oklahoma City with RSU President Dr. Larry Rice and Dr. Tobie Titsworth, vice president for student affairs, to receive the award.
