Exercise is Medicine®

Exercise is Medicine® On Campus (EIM-OC) calls upon universities and colleges to promote physical activity as a vital sign of health. In partnership with the Counseling Center and Campus Health, this medical and counseling referral program prescribes exercise to students in an effort to alleviate mental health and chronic disease symptoms.

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 Campus Health visit
  • Providing students with the tools necessary to strengthen healthy physical activity habits that can last a lifetime
  • Connecting university health care providers with university health fitness specialists to provide a referral system for exercise prescription. 

Students must be referred to this program by a Campus Health or Counseling Center provider.
