Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Special Session: "Using the Power of the Media to Help Build a Fit Nation"
Wednesday, May 30
11:45 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Moscone West, Room 3012

Screening of "Big Hits, Broken Dreams"
Wednesday, May 30
5:45-7:00 p.m.
Moscone West, Room 2016

Dr. Sanjay Gupta, CNN’s multiple-Emmy® award-winning chief medical correspondent, will speak tomorrow on “Using the Power of the Media to Help Build a Fit Nation” in a special session in Room 3012 of Moscone West. Concurrent with the meeting is the third World Congress on Exercise is Medicine®, the global initiative that says physical activity should be integral to the prevention and treatment of diseases and should be integrated into mainstream medical care. With up to 7,000 of the world’s leaders in medicine, exercise science, public health and other disciplines in attendance, Gupta will have a highly receptive audience—and one well positioned to carry out his call for individual and collective action to encourage healthier lifestyles.

In bringing his message to the ACSM meeting and World Congress, Gupta will have an international audience of professionals with whom to collaborate. Exercise is Medicine, an initiative coordinated by the ACSM, has evolved over the past two years as a rapidly growing multi-organizational, global initiative with regional centers and national Task Forces located in more than 25 countries on six continents.

Gupta will also conduct a special screening of the CNN documentary “Big Hits, Broken Dreams” that evening from 5:45-7:00 p.m. in Room 2016 of Moscone West. After the screening, subject experts Kevin Guskiewicz, Ph.D., FACSM, and Margot Putukian, M.D., FACSM, will take part in a panel discussion moderated by Gupta.

But one researcher in Atlanta contends that the ability to lead a healthy lifestyle and all of its contributing factors should become increasingly important to new families.

May is Exercise is Medicine Month
Times Bulletin    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Van Wert Hospital urges individuals and families of Van Wert, Ohio, to increase physical activity during May's Exercise is Medicine Month. Physical inactivity is a fast-growing public health problem and contributes to a variety of chronic diseases and health complications, including obesity, diabetes and cancer. Even with all the benefits of physical activity, in the U.S. and many other countries, levels of inactivity are alarming. We are facing what is now referred to as an "inactivity epidemic."

In the U.S., where we are seeing a startling increase in chronic diseases and consternation over health care costs, many see the Exercise is Medicine® initiative as part of the solution. During May, communities throughout the U.S. will hold activities that recognize that physical activity and exercise - shown to help prevent and treat more than 40 chronic diseases - should be part of everyone's health care plan.
