Exercise is Medicine @ UManitoba
Exercise is Medicine Canada on Bannatyne Campus is a recently established initiative within the Masters of Physiotherapy Program at the University of Manitoba. We are excited to create awareness among the student and faculty body about the benefits of physical activity. We want to encourage exercise prescription as a means for positive behaviour change, promotion of health & wellness and management strategies for the prevention and treatment of illness and disease.
Significant goals this year include:
· Encouraging positive behavior change;
· Building alliances with other student groups on campus;
· Breaking down barriers and stigma regarding exercise;
· Learning about other successful EIMC programs and activities.
We anticipate hosting various events and workshops throughout the year that are targeted at meeting our chosen objectives.
