Marshall University Recognized as Gold-Level Campus for Exercise Is Medicine Program; Only University in State to Earn EIM Recognition


Marshall University is setting the standard for promoting physical activity on college campuses in West Virginia. The university earned gold-level recognition in the Exercise is Medicine on Campus program, a U.S.-based health initiative through the American College of Sports Medicine.

In 2016, the ACSM will recognize over 50 colleges and universities around the world for participating in the program, with only a small percentage of schools receiving gold status.

Jennifer Pesarchick, program coordinator for Exercise is Medicine (EIM), said Marshall University will be recognized for this achievement June 1 during the World Congress on Exercise is Medicine and the American College of Sports Medicine’s annual meeting in Boston.

"Marshall has achieved gold-level recognition from Exercise is Medicine because of their outstanding efforts to make physical activity a standard on their campus," Pesarchick said. "No matter what level of recognition is received, we are excited to see campuses promoting physical activity and the vision of EIM." more
