Exercise as Medicine Symposium

This one-day multidisciplinary symposium on the science of exercise as medicine will highlight physical activity and exercise research as well as clinical activities at Johns Hopkins and neighboring regions. It is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Friday, April 13, in the Johns Hopkins Hospital's Chevy Chase Bank Auditorium.

The mission of the Johns Hopkins Center for Dynamic Health is to improve the health of individuals, communities, and the world by exploring the links between exercise and disease. The center aims to foster innovative research, education, and patient care, with the goal of advancing treatment for inactivity-related diseases.

Faculty, staff, and students are invited to attend in order to further discussion and collaboration to help create a plan of action so that Johns Hopkins may step forward as a powerful coalition of multidisciplinary scientists and physicians to lead the way in this critical arena. The symposium is free, but registration is required.
