About Exercise is Medicine:
Cuyahoga Community College is committed to promoting healthy living through outreach initiatives within our community and providing training for individuals with a passion to enter health care professions. Exercise is Medicine (EIM) on Campus calls upon universities and colleges to become engaged in the promotion of physical activity as a vital sign of health. The EIM solution aims to link the clinical to the community in combatting today’s most common chronic conditions through physical activity.
