A&M-Commerce Set to Host ‘Exercise is Medicine on Campus’ Events

The Department of Health and Human Performance at A&M-Commerce, along with Campus Recreation, will sponsor two events next week to celebrate Exercise is Medicine on Campus, a program that calls upon universities and colleges to promote physical activity as a vital sign of health.

The department will recognize Exercise is Medicine Day on Wednesday, Oct. 20 from 8 a.m. through 12 p.m. Six table stations will be set up on campus for activities including fitness challenges and testing, exercise tips, prizes and more.

Additionally, on Thursday, Oct. 21, guest speaker Matt Green, Ph.D., will present “Exercise and Perceptual Responses: Mediating Factors and Novel Applications.” Green is a professor of exercise science and associate dean in the College of Education and Human Sciences at the University of North Alabama. The presentation will be in the foyer of the A&M-Commerce Nursing and Health Sciences Building from 9:30-11 a.m.
