NCC will receive a certificate signed by President Obama during Healthy Campus Challenge Day at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on the White House Complex.

NCC is one of 100 colleges and universities across the U.S. to complete the challenge. Sixty of those colleges will attend Challenge Day.

The White House Healthy Campus Challenge aimed to engage college and university campuses, and in particular community college campuses, across the country in publicizing Affordable Care Act (ACA) health insurance open enrollment opportunities before the initial December 15 deadline, for coverage effective January 1, 2017.

NCC satisfied the necessary Challenge criteria by holding in-person enrollment activities with Access Health CT on campus, distributing Access Health CT brochures; sending emails to students, alumni and NCC employees reminding them about open enrollment; and posting open enrollment information on the college’s website, Facebook and Twitter feeds.

Representing NCC will be President David L. Levinson, Ph.D.; Paul Gallo, Ph.D., director of Exercise Science and Wellness; and Kimberly Bryant-Smith, a member of NCC’s Wellness Committee.
