Moore Norman Technology Center has been named a Certified Healthy Campus and a Certified Healthy Business, both at the excellence level by the Oklahoma State Department of Health's Certified Healthy Oklahoma Program. MNTC and other award winners will be honored on June 24 during the annual Certified Healthy Oklahoma event being held online.
According to the Certified Healthy Oklahoma website, recipients of the recognition are seen as leaders in their community for “going above and beyond to make health and wellness a priority.”
MNTC has a wellness program that offers employees tiered incentives for reaching individual health goals. The program offers points for traditional healthy ideas such as physical activities, healthy eating and regular wellness checks with medical and dental professionals. Newer point ideas MNTC uses include walking challenges, vaccinations/immunizations, hand washing and MNTC online fitness classes. Incentives are awarded to employees for each new level of health they achieve.
The Certified Healthy Oklahoma Program began in 2003 and is a free, voluntary statewide certification for businesses, communities, campuses, congregations and more types of organizations. The hope is that Oklahomans will choose healthier eating and lifestyle habits through encouragement at work, school and other places in their communities.
