Certified Healthy

Georgia Tech is committed to promoting, nurturing and enriching a community of health, well-being and caring. Certified Healthy was created to recognize student organizations, schools and colleges, campus departments/units, and other campus groups at Georgia Tech that have demonstrated a commitment to fostering healthy lifestyle choices across all dimensions of well-being (emotional, social, physical, professional, and spiritual). Your group does not need to do all of the items found in the application to become certified; rather, take this opportunity to have conversations around what your group is currently doing - and would like to be doing - to promote and encourage healthy lifestyles, well-being, and a culture of caring. 

Certified Healthy recipients are recognized as Georgia Tech leaders for going “above and beyond” to make health and well-being a priority. Most importantly, Certified Healthy gives recipients a sense of pride in their passion for improving not only individual health, but the Georgia Tech’s community as a whole.
