Communities come in many different forms, from individual family units to local organizations and gatherings that bring together diverse groups of people. Today's health professionals understand the importance of engaging their members in community-based health and wellness programs. There are numerous community-based health programs being offered in many communities across the country and EIM seeks to provide a systematic and coordinated approach for engaging community members across the lifespan in physical activity by linking local healthcare systems with these existing programs.
Many communities have a wealth of highly skilled individuals who may be trained as credentialed EIM Exercise Professionals and provide the guidance and support to their fellow community members. It is through the establishment and utilization of existing community programs, places and professionals that our communities can fulfill the potential of EIM in reshaping the health and wellness of their members.
