About Exercise is Medicine-On Campus (EIM-OC)

What is Exercise is Medicine-On Campus? 

It’s a collaborative effort between UHS, Rec Sports, School of Public Health, and the Dept. of Phys Ed, that aims to reduce your barriers to physical activity, help you explore the many available programs on campus, and support your engagement in physical activities of your choice to improve your mental health, physical health, and wellbeing. 

Why physical activity? 

There is clear evidence that engaging in regular physical activity benefits mood, aids sleep, reduces academic stress, helps treat chronic disease, bolsters immune response to illnesses, and reduces the symptoms and severity of depression and anxiety.
