USF Tampa Recognized as a Fit-Friendly Company

The American Heart Association has recognized the USF Tampa campus as a Fit-Friendly Company. The gold-level designation was awarded to the university for its commitment to employee health and wellness. The designation is only given to employers who have demonstrated that they go above and beyond when it comes to their employees’ health, and organizations must show that they have programs and practices in place in the areas of physical activity, smoking prevention and cessation nutrition and a culture of wellness.

Some of USF Tampa’s programs and benefits that merited the distinction include:

The Exercise is Medicine initiative, formed last fall

Smoking prevention and cessation programs, including the new smoking policy that limits smoking on campus

Healthy food options that are available on campus

On-site Recreation Center with discounted rates for faculty and staff
