Exercise is Medicine® on Campus (EIMOC) calls upon universities and colleges to promote physical activity as a vital sign of health. EIMOC 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.
In October 2015, EIM launched its first EIMOC Month. A number of schools participated and engaged their campuses in activities to celebrate physical activity. Activities and participation in EIMOC increased in 2016. This year in conjuction with EIMOC Month, EIM will launch a NEW Mascot Challenge. All registered campuses are eligible to participate and potentially earn a $1,000 scholarship along with bragging rights.
