Collaboration among the Waters College of Health Professions, Campus Recreation and Intramurals (CRI) and University Health Services has garnered Georgia Southern University a fourth Gold Level Campus by Exercise is Medicine® on Campus (EIM®-OC) designation.
The designation honors college campuses for their participation and engagement in the EIM®-OC program. Schools earn gold, silver or bronze status based on their activities related to physical activity promotion, education and EIM®-OC integration into campus health services.
Recognition provides an opportunity for campuses to enhance their image as a healthy academic environment and highlight their commitment to creating a culture of wellness.
“This is a campus-wide effort,” stated Bridget Melton, Ed.D, professor in the Department of Health Sciences and Kinesiology. “CRI offers physical activity opportunities on campus and the Waters College of Health Professions provides physical activity education. In addition, Health Services is key in prescribing medicine.”
