Exercise is Medicine On Campus at the University of British Columbia Okanagan is a newly launched group. Its goal is to promote exercise as preventative measures as well as treatment to disease. We aim to increase the percentage of students, faculty and staff who regularly participate in exercise at a level to achieve health benefits over the academic year. This will be achieved through hosting monthly events on campus that support exercise and wellness, as well as regular monthly seminars that promote the benefits of regular exercise to the campus community.
Our hope is to expand into the Okanagan community and develop connections with health professionals in an effort to promote exercise as effective medical treatment and as a tool for prevention of illness and disease.
We are very excited with the new development of our EIMC at UBC's Okanagan Campus and look forward to becoming a leader for exercise prescription within the Okanagan community.
