What's Your Medicine?

Exercise is Medicine





Exercise is Medicine (EIM) (On-Campus) is a global initiative sponsored by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). It is their vision to get university campuses and their surrounding communities active and heathy as a means to reduce dependence on traditional medicines.

To enhance the wellness of our students and employees, CGCC has incorporated Exercise is Medicine On Campus (EIM-OC) to the added benefit of the students, faculty, staff and the local community. It is our mission to promote health and wellness in the local community, advocating exercise as both a preventative and alternative medicine. We embrace the notion that movement matters for health and wellness.

In order to reach our goals, we need dedicated students who share a passion for getting active to help promote the EIM message. Which is why we have developed, a NEW student club on campus "Exercise is Medicine Club." This club will help educate students on exercise and its benefits, hosting events to get the community active, and implementing the importance of staying active and living a healthy lifestyle into the Chandler-Gilbert college system.
