With the rapid growth and increasing popularity of Exercise Is Medicine® (EIM), new leaders are needed to promote the EIM initiative regionally, nationally, and internationally. The objective of the EIM Emerging Leadership Program is to identify, develop, and train emerging individuals who will promote the EIM through outreach strategies, provide high level technical assistance to a growing number of collaborators throughout the United States and globally, and serve in future leadership positions. A selected group of individuals will receive training on all aspects of the EIM initiative, including the EIM Solution and its integration in health systems, research and evaluation, and ongoing programs such as the EIM Pledge, the EIM Ambassador Program, and EIM on Campus. EIM Emerging Leaders will serve as spokespeople, provide conference presentations, disseminate information, and engage in activities to expand the reach of the initiative.
After careful deliberation by the EIM Advisory Board, we are proud to announce the 2016 EIM Emerging Leaders!
