Exercise Is Medicine
January 16, 2014
Hosted by Rick Barnabo
Exercise is Medicine might be described as the only prescription with unlimited refills. What if that one prescription could prevent and treat dozens of diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and obesity do you think Doctors would prescribe it to their patients? Of course they would. In our show we’ll discuss this joint initiative between the American College of Sports Medicine and the American Medical Association. We will talk about recommended exercises, how it effects certain diseases and what we can be doing as a nation to become healthier. We will also include a terrific guest who is credentialed in this important initiative.
