An Interdisciplinary Approach to Meeting ACHA Healthy Campus 2020/2030 Objectives by Utilizing the Exercise is Medicine® on Campus Model

ACHA-NCHAII data indicate that most college students in the United States (US) do not engage in physical activity levels sufficient to meet national recommendations. With 230 colleges and universities nationwide now participating in the American College of Sports Medicine Exercise is Medicine® on Campus initiative, approximately 80 currently implement the physical activity vital sign (PAVS) and provide exercise referral and prescription. Campus-wide interprofessional collaboration for further adoption of EIM®OC and implementation success are discussed.

This webinar is partially sponsored by the American College Health Foundation Professional Nursing Fund.
