The purpose of this organization is to promote physical activity as a vital sign of health and activate EIM within our campus community. Our goal is for every student to graduate with better health and fitness than when they began, to become knowledgeable and passionate advocates for the benefits of regular physical activity, and to work toward the systematic assessment and promotion of physical activity within health care.
Faculty Advisors: Dr. Michaela Schenkelberg and Eddie Panton
