Exercise is Medicine Canada at Acadia University (EIMC-AU)

The Exercise is Medicine Canada initiative promotes the idea of promoting physical activity as a means of preventing and managing chronic conditions. Other Exercise is Medicine Canada on Campus groups have varied from promoting physical activity knowledge to primarily a hands-on groups that hosts events to get students moving. The Exercise is Medicine at Acadia University club is going to integrate both the information aspect with events. To be more specific, club members will gain knowledge on exercise, fitness, physical activity, and the importance of decreasing sedentary behavior as a means of preventing and managing chronic conditions. As well, our goal is to host an event this year that will promote physical activity for both the students and the community.
