Health Care Association Partners

Health care professionals are on the front lines of providing patient care. Each and every day they impact lives and have the power to promote healthy lifestyles. Their professional associations are uniquely positioned to provide member education and engage in advocacy campaigns to advance Exercise is Medicine®. These organizations represent MDs, DOs, PAs, NPs, RNs, PTs, ATCs and others who are dedicated to delivering an optimal patient experience and positive health outcomes. Every member of the care team can play a role in integrating EIM into the practice and will personally benefit from embracing physical activity in their own lives.

Exercise is Medicine® believes that partnering with like-minded organizations allows everyone to leverage their mutual resources and areas of expertise to improve patient and provider health through the promotion of regular physical activity.
