A Landmark Accomplishment for ACSM & Exercise is Medicine® (EIM) — Part I of Implementing the EIM Solution!

from By Adrian Hutber, Ph.D. & Phillip Trotter

Adrian Hutber, Ph.D. Phillip Trotter
Adrian Hutber, Ph.D., has served as vice president of Exercise is Medicine® at ACSM since 2008, after previously serving as vice president of a major fitness corporation and as the director of the distance education division at Human Kinetics. During his time at ACSM, Dr. Hutber has helped to establish seven EIM Regional Centers and 43 EIM National Centers, all with the goal of making physical activity assessment, prescription and referral part of health care systems globally.

Phil Trotter, B.S., leads the EIM Solution “on the ground.” The EIM Solution is the key component of EIM that brings about implementation of community networks that include local health systems, health providers and resources necessary to make physical activity and exercise a standard element in the delivery of health care to all patients.

This commentary summarizes perhaps the most exciting news about Exercise is Medicine® since its inception in 2007. For reasons of scope and complexity, the presentation is divided into Parts I and II. Part I presents a short overview of EIM and key details from a special press conference held late last month at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. (see: This part also identifies the roles of the EIM Solution, the EIM Global Center and the EIM Global Research and Collaborative Center, all of which are key components needed to implement EIM in large U.S. health systems. Part II will follow soon in a future issue of SMB.
