Exercise is Medicine® on Campus (EIM-OC) is a program calling upon universities and colleges to engage in the promotion of physical activity as a vital sign of health. EIM-OC encourages faculty, staff and students to work together toward improving the health and well-being of the campus community by:
- Making movement a part of the daily campus culture
- Assessing physical activity at every student health visit
- Providing students the tools necessary to strengthen healthy physical activity habits that can last a lifetime
- Connecting university health care providers with university health fitness specialists to provide a referral system for exercise prescription
Grand Rapids Community College is currently the only community college in the state of Michigan that is a registered EIM campus partner. In 2015 GRCC was recognized with a Bronze level status and in 2016 awarded Silver level status by the EIM-OC.
