Exercise is Medicine on Campus

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Exercise is Medicine® on Campus (EIM-OC), an initiative by the American College of Sports Medicine, calls upon universities and colleges to promote physical activity as a vital sign of health. EIM-OC encourages faculty, staff and students to work together toward improving the health and well-being of the campus community by:

  • Making movement a part of the daily campus culture.
  • Assessing physical activity at every student health visit.
  • Providing students with the tools necessary to strengthen healthy physical activity habits that can last a lifetime.
  • Connecting university health care providers with university health fitness specialists to provide a referral system for exercise prescription.

Currently, more than 250 colleges and universities both across the United States and around the globe participate in EIM-OC.
