Exercise is Medicine @ Laurentian University
Exercise is Medicine on Campus (EIMC) @ Laurentian University (LU) has officially launched. To kick things off this spring, we participated in the Annual School of Human Kinetics Conference on March 27th. The inaugural EIMC executives served breakfast at the conference as a fund raising event. We are looking for club members and for individuals looking to jump into an executive position.
EIMC @ Laurentian University will launch its first full academic year in September 2015. The launch will include a comprehensive Facebook campaign featuring community sport and physical activity opportunities, as well as debunking exercise myths. The fall and winter will bring various physical activity events, participation in Frosh Week and our debut at club days. Finally, the spring will feature a fun run to conclude the academic year. The club will work alongside affiliated groups at Laurentian, including: Health Services, the Peer Health Education Team, the School of Human Kinetics Student and Faculty councils and the Interprofessional Health Group. Future connections include: other Schools in the Faculty of Health, the Northern Ontario Medical School (East) and local health practitioners.
The EIMC @ LU hopes to increase physical activity on campus, while establishing interprofessional connections among future health and exercise professionals that support the EIMC vision and goals.
Exercise is Medicine @ Laurentian Campus would like to extend an invitation to all to join us on our Facebook page (EIMC @ Laurentian University) or at exerciseIsMedicine@Laurentian.ca
