Let’s get physical

Written by: Jessica Ingram

The Exercise Physiology Club encourages you to exercise good judgment.

On Saturday, the Exercise Physiology Club will host the Exercise is Medicine Symposium from 7:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. in Jennett Lecture Hall Room 1111.

Designed to inform the community about the international Exercise is Medicine initiative, the event, which also occurred last year, features doctors and healthcare providers speaking about the importance of exercise.

“The Exercise is Medicine initiative was launched in November of 2007 by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the American Medical Association (AMA),” Sarah Fretti, exercise physiology instructor, said. “The consortium is committed to the belief that exercise and physical activity play an integral part in the prevention and treatment of disease and should be assessed as part of medical care.”

The event requires a same-day registration fee of $20 and is open to the public.
