Exercise is Medicine®- ACSM is a leading the efforts to advance Exercise is Medicine®, a global initiative designed to encourage patients to incorporate physical activity and exercise into their daily routine. Exercise is Medicine® calls on physicians and other health care providers to prescribe exercise to their patients. The goal is to make physical activity and exercise a standard part of a disease prevention and treatment medical paradigm. The program aims to have physical activity to be considered by all healthcare providers as a vital sign in every patient visit, and to ensure that patients are effectively counseled and referred to to their physical activity and health needs, thus leading to overall improvement in the public's health and long-term reduction in healthcare cost. Orlando, Florida, USA was host to the 10th World Congress on Exercise is Medicine in 2019. The 2020 World Congress on Exercise Medicine was cancelled due to COVID-19. ACSM American Fitness Index Initiative- ACSM manages the American Fitness Index. The program monitors, measures, and motivates communities around the United States in their efforts to lead more active and healthy lifestyles. In June 2020, AFI has released its 13th annual report with this year's report ranking America's 100 largest cities using 33 health behaviors, including those related to physical activity. Support of Legislation- ACSM's Policy Center regularly interacts with legislators proposing legislation related to physical activity and mobilizes ACSM members to express their support for the initiatives. Specific examples include: - Supporting HR 2891, the Physical Activities Recommendations for Americans Act in the House of Representatives. The bill would direct the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to prepare and promote physical activity recommendations based on the latest scientific evidence at least every ten years. - Supporting The Personal Health Investment Today Act (PHIT) which would change the types of expenditures that could be payable out of tax-favored health savings accounts (HSAs), flexible spending accounts (FSAs), medical savings accounts (MSAs) and/or medical reimbursement arrangements. The PHIT Act would allow consumers to include prevention in the form of increased physical activity, allowing fitness center dues, payments for some exercise equipment, youth sports/physical activity fees and other costs associated with active lifestyles to be paid with pre-tax dollars up to $1,000 cap for individuals and $2,000 for families. - Supporting The Complete Streets Act of 2019 (H.R. 3663/S. 2077) which would require states to set aside money for Complete Streets projects and create a statewide program to administer funds and technical support. A “complete street” is one designed to provide efficient transportation for multiple modes of travel. This includes space for pedestrians, bicyclists, and public transit users – not just cars. The ideal "complete street" is safe for children, older adults, and those with disabilities.
