EXERCise is Medicine - and a whole lot more!
ExerCYse is a Department of Kinesiology Outreach program that is working to advance the global 'Exercise is Medicine' (EIM) initiative. The goal of the EIM initiative is to increase visibility about the importance of physical activity and to advance the notion of exercise as a 'vital sign' in the medical community.

ExerCYse at Iowa State University is officially recognized by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) as an Exercise is Medicine - On Campus (EIM-OC) program. We achieved Silver status in 2017 and are continuing to enhance the program over time and are pushing for Gold designation next. Visit the Kinesiology Outreach link to learn more about the unique vision of EIM-OC and how our group is achieving this vision.
