Glendale Community College earns ‘Gold Campus’ exercise honor

Posted

Glendale Community College is one of only 156 universities and colleges around the world to be honored by Exercise is Medicine for its efforts to create a culture of wellness on campus.

GCC boasts an active Fitness & Wellness Department and Employee Wellness Program that includes state-of-the-art Fitness Centers, a Sports Performance Lab, an Olympic-size swimming pool, as well as outdoor tennis courts, racquetball courts, and running track. These facilities plus student, faculty and staff involvement helped GCC earn gold level designation from the Exercise is Medicine On Campus program.

“We are proud that health and wellness is embraced by many campus departments at GCC, including Nursing, Counseling and Nutrition that guide students to make healthier choices and also encourage individuals to visit our campus Fitness & Wellness facilities,” Louise So, GCC faculty and Personal Trainer Program director, shared in a statement.

GCC has a main campus at 6000 W. Olive Ave., and a north campus at 5727 W. Happy Valley Road.

Glendale was one of 73 colleges to receive gold level recognition. All universities and colleges will be officially recognized in June as part of the 2022 Exercise is Medicine World Congress, held in conjunction with the American College of Sports Medicine’s Annual Meeting.

The GCC Exercise is Medicine-On Campus Leadership Team consists of Louise So, advisor; Dr. Grace Paul, DNP, RN, CNE, Health Care Professional/Department Chair-Nursing; Dr. Aaron Fried, Health Fitness Professional/Certified Athletic Trainer; Justine Frazini, student representative; and Derek Roman, student representative.
