Exercise is Medicine® Month: Simple and Quick Ways to Get Involved

Exercise is Medicine® Month 2011 is quickly approaching! This year, it’s easier than ever to get involved. Now, and during the month of May, you can:
  • Secure a governor’s or mayor’s proclamation from your state governor or local mayor declaring May as Exercise is Medicine Month. After getting your elected official’s signature, send us a copy at eim@acsm.org, so we can recognize your efforts. If you secure a proclamation, ask the mayor to hold a special press announcement or event signifying EIM Month. It’s an opportunity for officials to showcase their commitment to the importance of physical activity.
  • Write an exercise prescription for your patients with this easy-to-use form, or give the form to health care providers in your area. Doing so can help forge a connection between health care and fitness.
  • Utilize the resources in the EIM Health Care Providers’ Action Guide and the EIM Health & Fitness Professionals’ Action Guide. In the guides, you’ll find information on the exercise prescription and referral process and much more.
  • Sign up for EIM updates and tools. You’ll receive more ideas and resources for integrating Exercise is Medicine into your professional life.
Look for more EIM Month updates and resources in future issues of SMB. more
