Exercise is Medicine!


Research shows exercise is useful in the treatment and prevention of more than 40 chronic diseases including obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension.


This month the American College of Sports Medicine is again partnering with the “Exercise is Medicine” program to celebrate the benefits of physical activity so crucial to ensuring a healthy and productive lifestyle. The US Surgeon General’s office wants everyone to know that exercise greatly reduces serious health risks. Just increasing your physical activity a little bit can help you and your family prevent many illnesses and improve your health and well-being!

Check-out the free public tool kit available at ExerciseisMedicine.org. If you see your physician this month, and they do not ask you about your physical activity, tell them about this program.

PositiveTip: Get at least 30 minutes of physical activity today–and most days that follow this one!
