University of Saskatchewan students launch Exercise is Medicine on campus

The School of Public Health invites media to the launch of Exercise Is Medicine (EIM) Canada on the University of Saskatchewan campus. EIM is based on evidence that physical activity and exercise alleviate illness (for example: anxiety and insomnia).

Arts 104

9 Campus Drive

EIM is a national program dedicated to showing how exercise improves the health of Canadians. With this new partnership, each year a student-led group will be tasked with promoting exercise as a form of medicine to their peers, and U of S health-care professionals at Student Health Services will prescribe exercise to some patients.
