The Healthy Sooners program, a project between OU Student Affairs and Human Resources, is credited with making a significant impact in the health of OU's Norman campus community.

• A weight-loss program, open to all members of the OU community, that shows participants how to enjoy a full plate of food and still lose weight.

• Use of the university's Huston Huffman Recreational Center and Murray Case Sells Swim Complex.

• Discounted fitness center membership rates at select area fitness centers for OU Blue Cross members who join the Blue Cross Blue Shield fitness program.

• Departmental coed basketball games at Huston Huffman, open to all faculty, staff and retirees.
