Global Network

Spreading the EIM Initiative Globally

The Exercise is Medicine® (EIM) Global network is coordinated by the EIM Global Center based in the United States and managed by the American College of Sports Medicine.  The EIM Global Center works with key partners across the globe to establish EIM national centers and EIM regional centers, and form associations with EIM affiliate partners. EIM national and regional centers are hosted by nationally recognized organizations or institutions such as a university, a professional association or a health care system. 

The EIM Global Center has taken a multisectoral approach to the establishment of EIM national centers in each country to ensure the best possibility of success. Each EIM national center is composed of an advisory board with representatives from

  • national primary care associations,
  • leading medical, sports medicine or health care associations,
  • academic institutions,
  • national health and fitness associations
  • and, when possible, the Ministry of Health or National Public Health Institute. 

Close collaboration with industry partners and the media (including social media) may aid in key areas such as initiative funding and public messaging.

The EIM Global Center has established EIM regional centers in Latin America, Asia and Europe. Each EIM regional center provides guidance and coordination of EIM-related activities within its region and works with the EIM Global Center to establish EIM in other countries in the region. This approach has helped ‘spread’ the EIM initiative so that EIM has established a presence in ~40 countries globally.
