POULTNEY, Vt. (UMNS) - United Methodist-related Green Mountain College has been named one of the "Top 10 Healthiest Companies for Women" in the July/August issue of Health magazine.

The magazine places the college shoulder to shoulder with employers including Verizon, Bristol-Myers Squibb and SC Johnson - companies that have, according to the article, demonstrated "flexible, accessible programs to help women accomplish the ultimate multitasking feat: balancing professional and personal responsibilities."

"At Green Mountain College, a 2-year-old wellness center offers professors and staff an array of alternative tension-taming treatments and classes at low cost," the article states.

"Other perks include picking up fresh vegetables at the campus farm, which sells produce from the school's 10,000-square-foot garden," it says. "Plus, the only doctor in town works at the college's health clinic," which offers services such as blood work, pregnancy tests and Pap tests.

Other companies included by the magazine are Clif Bar Inc., Berkeley, Calif.; ARUP Laboratories, Salt Lake City; Genentech, South San Francisco; New York Life Insurance Co., New York; Roche, Nutley, N.J., and Guidant Corp., Indianapolis.

Founded in 1834, Green Mountain College is a private, four-year liberal arts institution that takes the environment as a unifying theme across the curriculum. It is one of more than 100 colleges and universities related to the United Methodist Church.
