Exercise Is Medicine Now in Year Two
All students, faculty, and staff are needed for a study on campus health.
The Exercise is Medicine-On Campus study is now kicking off year two! The program is recruiting University of Arkansas students, faculty and staff (age 18 or older) of all sizes, abilities and fitness levels. The study will include completing a new online survey with the option to also participate in an in-person health and fitness assessment.
Participants completing the survey will have the chance to win one of five $50 cash prizes.

Participants completing the in-person health and fitness assessment will be eligible to win one of three $100 cash prizes.
Participants must be English speaking and should not have any limitations preventing them from attempting the in-person assessments including pregnancy.
