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.
The Exercise is Medicine - On Campus (EIM-OC) club at Iowa State University is officially recognized by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). The club has sustained the Silver status designation for over 10 years and has continued to enhance the program over time.
Visit the Kinesiology Outreach link to learn more about the unique vision of EIM-OC and how our group is achieving this vision.
ExerCYse Time will be back in the Fall of 2022 and Spring of 2023. Programming allows youth to 'exercyse' with ISU students and athletes. Check out our "Community" tab for details. Read the article here to learn more!
