USC’s Exercise is Medicine Designation

Working Well would like to congratulate the University of South Carolina for recently receiving the bronze accreditation for Exercise is Medicine on Campus, a program that promotes physical activity as a vital indicator of the health and wellbeing of students, faculty, and staff on a college campus. It encourages all campus members to work together to improve the health of the university through making physical activity a part of daily campus culture; assessing activity levels at university health visits; providing resources to students to strengthen physical activity habits; and connecting university health care providers to fitness specialists to refer exercise as a prescription for medicine. USC is proud to have received this honor and is now looking at how to further improve the university’s environment to promote active living.
