Exercise is Medicine™ is an initiative designed to encourage America to incorporate physical activity and exercise into their daily routine. The initiative, launched by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the American Medical Association (AMA) in November 2007, calls on doctors to prescribe exercise to their patients and work hand in hand with their patient’s fitness professionals. This initiative recognizes the role of the fitness community as part of the health care continuum by working with the medical community. “Exercise is Medicine Month™,” the special recognition month for Exercise is Medicine™ is a time for everyone to recognize, emphasize and celebrate the valuable health benefits of exercise on a national scale. ~Function First, SD.
