The American College of Sport Medicine recognizes LLU for “Exercise is Medicine – On Campus” in healthcare

Loma Linda University has received the American College of Sports Medicine's Exercise is Medicine – On Campus Gold Award, ACSM's highest honor.

The EIM-OC initiative promotes the use of additional training methods to treat diseases.

“This recognition demonstrates that Loma Linda University is a leader in assessing and promoting physical activity on campus,” said Kimberly Knowlton, DrPH, MSPT, director of LLUH’s Drayson Center Health, Wellness and Recreation Facility. “We are so proud to be part of this movement to make exercise a standard for improving the health and lifestyles of our students, faculty and staff at Loma Linda University.”

Knowlton and her team are committed to monitoring progress and achieving ACSM's Gold award level each year. Several members of the Drayson Center team will be present at the awards ceremony on May 29 in Boston at the ACSM Annual Conference.

Knowlton said Drayson Center staff is developing new events and activities that promote a healthy lifestyle, including new classes, sports competitions and more advice on lifestyle and nutrition.
