Description

The purpose of this organization is to encourage regular physical activity and understanding of its health benefits by members of the ISU campus and the Ames, IA community. A secondary aim of Exercise is Medicine on Campus is to encourage health care providers to include physical activity as a ‘vital sign,’ including the consideration and recommendation of physical activity when designing treatment plans. Exercise is Medicine on Campus is committed to the belief that physical activity is integral in the prevention and treatment of disease and should be a part of medical care. Exercise is Medicine on Campus ambassadors will be active volunteers at events to help communicate this message. This organization is directly affiliated with the Iowa State University Department of Kinesiology and the American College of Sports Medicine.
