SAC Receives National Health and Wellness Award

The American Heart Association presented San Antonio College with the Fit-Friendly Worksite award recognizing the colleges’ efforts at making the health and wellness of their employees a priority. SAC received the Gold Level award and could be up for receiving the Platinum level next year.

Danielle Gunter, senior corporate market director with the American Heart Association, visited San Antonio College this week to present the college with the national award.

“You are able to say, ‘We want our employee’s to be heart healthy and know there is a positive environment here’,” said Gunter about SAC’s achievement.

“Thanks for taking such a huge interest in health and wellness,” Gunter said. I wish more companies would do this and realize the potential, said Gunter. There would be less employee sick days, just by encouraging employees to do simple things like taking the stairs instead of the elevator.

Being recognized at the gold level means SAC offers all employees physical activity support at the workplace, has increased the number of healthy eating options, promotes a wellness culture, and embraces at least nine criteria as outlined by the American Heart Association in the areas of physical activity, nutrition and culture. 

Chris Dillon, SAC wellness coordinator, said some assessments are already in place and more are to come to help SAC reach the next level.  

“This is a national award that is hard to obtain,” said Dillon. “I am proud of our efforts.” 

SAC’s health and wellness initiatives include many pre and post health assessments and the availability of health and wellness activities for all employees to participate including walks and school specific activities and campaigns. Assessments include pre and post job satisfaction, pre and post health risk assessments, pre and post fitness assessments and assessments with a dietician for our Employee Wellness Program. There are about six different measures that we will be putting into place, said Dillon. 

“So, next year, we should be able to hit platinum status.” 

“Chris, you have done a remarkable job,” said SAC President Robert Zeigler. “ We would not be getting this without you.” 

Dillon said he would be presenting a return on investment report in August of how the health and wellness program has helped the employees at SAC. 

SAC Fit-Friendly Worksite Award    

The Fit-Friendly Worksite Recognition program is an award given by the American Heart Association’s My Heart. My Life. initiative. It is intended to be a catalyst for positive change in workplaces across America. Fit-Friendly Worksites are recognized as employers who go above and beyond to improve their employees’ health.  

According to the Fit-Friendly Worksites website and the American Heart Association, heart disease is the No. 1 killer in the U.S. and physical inactivity doubles the risk. It is a scary thought when you realize we spend most of our waking hours sitting behind our desks at work, says the web page.  

Heart disease is also the number one killer among women, more so than all cancers combined. The American Heart Association focuses on educating everyone about heart disease risks and how to become heart healthy. A special program for women is called the Go Red for Women that raises awareness about the risks women face.
