Exercise is Medicine® on Campus (EIM-OC) is a program calling upon universities and colleges to engage in the promotion of physical activity as a vital sign of health. EIM-OC encourages faculty, staff and students to work together toward improving the health and well-being of the campus community by:
- Making movement a part of the daily campus culture
- Assessing physical activity at every student health visit
- Providing students the tools necessary to strengthen healthy physical activity habits that can last a lifetime; and
- Connecting university health care providers with university health fitness specialists to provide a referral system for exercise prescription.
This year EIM-OC launches its Recognition Program, which will allow campuses to be acknowledged for their participation and engagement in EIM. Schools will have the opportunity to establish themselves as a gold, silver, or bronze level campus, based upon their activities and level of engagement. Register your campus by completing the Leadership Team form below to become an EIM-OC school and receive the Recognition Handbook!
EIM-OC can be activated on any campus, large or small, rural or urban. Let's get moving!
