California State University, Fresno
2018 Progress Report
Committed to meet 23 guidelines—developed by PHA in collaboration with some of the nation’s leading nutrition, physical activity and campus wellness experts—around nutrition, physical activity, and programming on campus.
“Fresno State had a successful 2018 – our first full year as part of the Partnership for a Healthier America. We convened a campus-wide planning coalition of twenty-one members who continued to advise the Healthier Campus Initiative towards the completion of our twenty-three food and nutrition, physical activity/movement and programming guidelines. The highlight of the year was the launch of the marked Bulldog Walking Trails. Whether Fresno State students, faculty or staff are looking for a quick walk for their morning or afternoon break, a stress release from class or a longer trail that is perfect for a run, our marked 1-mile, 1.5-mile or 2-mile trails are ideal! A ribbon cutting ceremony was held to formally introduce the marked trails during Healthy Campus Week 2018. Healthy Campus Week had activities for faculty, staff and students all week long including a Fresh Fruit Walk, a Wellness & Me Fair, and a CalFresh Clinic that culminated with a Zumba class on Friday. Over 1,400 people were in attendance at the week of events with a reach of over 40,000 over the social media airwaves. 2019 promises to be the biggest year yet!”
