On May 31, Exercise is Medicine® officially recognized GRCC among the 61 colleges and universities from around the world that participated in the EIM on Campus program. The initiative is meant to promote physical activity as a vital sign of health to campus communities. The awards were given as part of the 2017 Exercise is Medicine® World Congress, held in conjunction with the American College of Sports Medicine’s Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado.
“Each of these campuses has made a difference at their school by making physical activity a priority,” said Dr. Carena Winters, chair of the Exercise is Medicine on Campus program. “These college and university leaders are making movement a part of the daily campus culture and providing students the tools necessary to strengthen healthy physical activity habits that will benefit them throughout their life.”
