Public Urged To Get Active And "May-Kit Happen" This Month

The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) announced "May-Kit Happen," a program to recognize Exercise is Medicine™ month by encouraging the public to lead a healthier, more active lifestyle throughout the month of May. May-Kit Happen" asks people to incorporate a little more physical activity into their lives and talk with their physicians during the month of May about what types of exercise are best suited to their health. ‘If there is one single thing you can do to improve your health, there is no doubt it is exercise,’ said Robert E. Sallis, M.D., FACSM, ACSM President and Chair of the Exercise is Medicine initiative. ‘Regular physical activity is so powerful in maintaining and improving health that it should be prescribed, just as medicine or any drug would be. This idea deserves the attention of the month of May. We hope people will pledge to be a little more active this month to gain that positive impact on their health.’
