HSEM3701H: Exercise is Medicine

2 CreditsHonorsTopics Course

Regular exercise is essential for good health and is important in the prevention and treatment of many diseases. The benefits of exercise and fitness, however, are frequently overlooked and under-emphasized in American health care delivery. Similar to other medical interventions, exercise has indications, contraindications, and potential complications and side effects. This seminar will explore these issues as well as related ones such as musculoskeletal concerns, nutrition, and sedentary physiology. Seminar format will include lectures, assigned readings, discussions, tests, and participant presentations. All seminar participants will research a different pre-approved aspect of exercise as medicine and present their findings at the seminar.
