Exercise is Medicine

Exercise is Medicine is an initiative started by American Physician Dr. Robert E. Sallis. Through launching the EIM initiative, he promotes exercise as a solution to a number of chronic diseases and illnesses. Thus, the EIM mission is to provide abundant evidence on the benefits of physical activity and eventually have exercise prescribed by physicians. EIMC @ York is one of many divisions of Exercise is Medicine Canada (EIMC) on Canadian campuses. Our mission is to foster early collaborative inter-professional relationships between exercise and health care professionals. Thus our purpose on campus is to:

1. Promote physical activity as a means of prevention and treatment of disease within York University

2. Provide information and resources to assist health care providers in prescribing exercise as medicine

3. Increase the amount of York University students meeting the Canadian PA guidelines

We plan to accomplish these by hosting a number of events on campus as well as collaborating with a number of other York University clubs.
