Evidence for EIM - Contributors

ACSM scientists and faculty are on the forefront of developments in our understanding of the acute and chronic effects of physical activity (PA) on overall health and disease prevention/management, as well as the economic and public health impact of PA and sedentary behaviors. Research to identify the most effective EIM interventions (to bridge the gap between health care and community-based PA resources) is ongoing. The following individuals have contributed to the science-based facts presented on the EIM website. We would like to especially thank Cherie Pettit, EdD, FACSM for her work in soliciting and assembling contributions from the subject matter experts listed below.
