Improve Patient Outcomes with New Exercise is Medicine® Program

Excercise is medince logoExercise is Medicine® (EIM) is a global health initiative managed by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) that is focused on encouraging primary care physicians and other health care providers to include physical activity when designing treatment plans for patients and referring their patients to EIM program facilities.

The DeKalb Medical Wellness Center is a certified Medical Fitness facility able to provide the Exercise is Medicine program. The Wellness Center can provide a prescription pad to any doctor’s office so they are able to prescribe exercise to their patient. The patient will bring the prescription to the Wellness Center and the patient will be set up for an assessment with a wellness coach.

This program allows a continuum of communication with the physician, the patient and the Wellness Center providing the best opportunity for success for the patient.
