This is a key component of EIM that supports the implementation of community stakeholder groups and the resources to make physical activity a standard element in the delivery of health care to all patients. Phil is a community care thought leader and collaborative subject matter expert. He consults with leaders of health systems, as well as executives and their staffs in population health management.

Felipe Lobelo, M.D., Ph.D., is an associate professor of Global Health at Emory’s Rollins School of Public Health. He directs the EIM Global Research and Collaboration Center (EIM-GRCC). The EIM-GRCC is the academic hub of EIM that carries out the lead role in evaluating the EIM initiative. To execute this function, EIM-GRCC collaborates with health care systems, community organizations, and fitness and technology companies.

This is the second installment of a two-part commentary on recent landmark developments in the Exercise is Medicine® (EIM) initiative. See the archived March 22, 2016 issue of SMB for Part I for background on the foundational aspects of EIM. Part II focuses on how the EIM Solution establishes physical activity as a primary behavioral factor in the prevention and treatment of major chronic diseases.
