Jesse Chaffin, OSU-CHS health and wellness manager, was presented the Gold Achievement award by the American Heart Association for his work in creating a fit-friendly worksite.

“As far as the award itself, I don't really feel it is an award for me, but for all of CHS,” Chaffin said. “I can't be awarded for the participation and hard work of others.”

The AHA’s Fit-Friendly Worksite Gold Achievement award recognizes employers who go above and beyond to support employee health, including programs to promote physical activity, healthy eating and a culture of wellness. OSU launched its America’s Healthiest Campus initiative in 2014 with the vision to improve student, faculty and staff wellness.
