If there was a medication you could take that would lead to a higher quality of life while simultaneously decreasing blood pressure, improving mood, treating and preventing diabetes and losing weight, would you take it?

Certainly! And this medication is EXERCISE!



Salisbury University is joining a national campaign organized by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). Exercise is Medicine (EIM) is an initiative designed to improve the health and well-being of the nation through increasing the awareness of exercise and its health benefits.  Physical inactivity continues to grow as a public health problem and contributes to chronic diseases and other health complications, including heart disease, obesity, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, osteoporosis, depression, and anxiety.  Physical activity and exercise are important and effective avenues for the prevention and treatment of many chronic diseases. SU’s EIM Team, comprised of various faculty/staff members representing the Department of Health & Sport Sciences, Student Health Services and the University Fitness Club, is dedicated to providing numerous educational resources and opportunities  for physically activity to the students, faculty and staff at SU and the surrounding community. Stay tuned for more information on upcoming events.
