NDSCS earns CEO Cancer Gold Standard re-accreditation

Posted on 5/15/2017

North Dakota State College of Science has again been re-accredited as a CEO Cancer Gold StandardTM employer for 2017. NDSCS has maintained this standard since 2013.

NDSCS is a tobacco-free campus and has an active employee-driven Wellness Team that oversees campus-wide initiatives, including health screenings, a flu shot blitz, a fruit/veggie challenge, healthy cooking classes, walking programs and more.

The CEO Roundtable on Cancer, a nonprofit organization of CEOs, founded by former President George H.W. Bush, created the Gold Standard to recognize employers for taking exceptional health and wellness measures on behalf of their employees.

To earn Gold Standard accreditation, an employer must take concrete actions to reduce the risk and burden of cancer: prohibit tobacco use and support tobacco cessation efforts; promote physical activity, healthy nutrition and weight management; provide health insurance options that include detecting cancer at its earliest stages, access to quality care and participation in cancer clinical trials; promote employee awareness of these initiatives; and support the needs of cancer survivors in the workplace.
