Rx for Health Series - Contributors

The Rx for Health series includes handouts that can be used by clinicians and exercise professionals to support recommendations to patients and clients regarding physical activity. The series includes foundational documents (e.g. Sit Less. Move More. and Being Active for a Better Life) and many condition-specific handouts (for example, Being Active with Type 2 Diabetes) that align with the latest ACSM and national guidelines, while providing practical tips and precautions.  

ACSM professional members with expertise in various areas and clinical exercise physiologists from the Clinical Exercise Physiology Association (CEPA) have kindly assisted in the creation and review of these patient handouts.
