Exercise is Medicine Canada at UofT (EIMC@UofT)

Exercise is Medicine Canada (EIMC) provides national leadership in promoting physical activity as a chronic disease prevention and management strategy to improve the health of Canadians.

EIMC is a movement to make Canadians healthier. EIMC is based upon abundant evidence that physical activity and exercise reduce the risk of chronic disease and the belief that:
• Most Canadians can find simple ways to incorporate physical activity and exercise into their daily routines;
• More should be done to address physical activity and exercise in the healthcare setting; physical activity and exercise should be incorporated as a key health indicator and standard of medical care as a ‘vital sign’; and
• Certified exercise professionals serve as important resources for Canadians and their healthcare providers.

Goals of the EIMC Student Group @ UofT:

1) Promote inter-professional discussion and learning about exercise
2) Strive to promote physical activity as a means of treatment and prevention of illness within the student population.
3) Develop strong relationships between health professions to build resources, advocates and supporters of prescribing exercise as a means of treatment and disease prevention.
4) Increase awareness of the physical and mental health benefits of exercise and its use as a modality for prevention and treatment of disease in the greater population through use of social media and visual representation.
