Exercise is Medicine Initiative

We will be kicking off our Exercise is Medicine-On Campus initiative with a 1-mile walk lead by President Hunter beginning at the New Balance Student Recreation Center at 4 p.m.

In addition to the grand celebration on September 6, we will also be announcing the launch of the Exercise is Medicine- On Campus initiative. This national program is calling upon universities and colleges to engage in the promotion of physical activity as a vital sign of health. The initiative encourages faculty, staff and students to work together toward improving the health and well-being of the community by making movement a part of the daily campus culture; by assessing physical activity at every student health visit; by providing community members the tools necessary to strengthen healthy physical activity habits that can last a lifetime; and by connecting UMaine healthcare providers with UMaine health/ fitness specialists to provide a referral system for exercise prescription. Campus Recreation is proud to celebrate our 10th year of the Rec Center, and we are proud to launch the Exercise is Medicine- On Campus initiative at UMaine as a way to continue meeting, enhancing and promoting our mission of “Making the University Stronger”.
