In April 2017, Dominique Gummelt, director of University Health &amp; Wellness, announced that Andrews University had earned Gold Level status for another year.</p> <p> The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) is the highest governing body for exercise and fitness in the world. Its health initiative, Exercise is Medicine&reg; on Campus, is a program aimed at colleges and universities around the world to encourage and promote physical activity among students, faculty and staff. The initiative includes the following criteria:</p> <ul> <li> Making movement a part of the daily campus culture</li> <li> Assessing physical activity at every student health visit</li> <li> Providing students with the tools necessary to strengthen healthy physical activity habits that can last a lifetime</li> <li> Connecting university healthcare providers with university health fitness specialists to provide a referral system for exercise prescription</li> </ul> <p> Andrews University is not only a registered EIM on Campus institution, but has also achieved Gold Level Recognition and received the Gold Level Award from ACSM for the implementation of the initiative&rsquo;s vital health signs around campus.</p> <p> &ldquo;It is an incredible honor for Andrews University to have been identified as a Gold Level Campus by the Exercise is Medicine on Campus initiative for the second year in a row,&rdquo; says Gummelt.</p> <p> The Gold Level Campus award is a high-level recognition, both nationally and internationally. In 2016, Andrews was the first private university to gain this status and the seventh university in the United States to achieve this level.</p> <p> The Andrews University Health &amp; Wellness initiative coincides with the criteria of EIM-OC and is the reason for Andrews being recognized with this high-level award. The initiative approaches its efforts from a holistic perspective and focuses on physical activity as a key element in promoting physical wellness.</p> <p> &ldquo;Exercise is truly medicine, and we look forward to continue promoting this medium among this campus, and the local and global community, to strive for a higher quality of life,&rdquo; says Gummelt. &ldquo;This will bring greater happiness and wellbeing.&rdquo;</p> <p> In addition to the American College of Sports Medicine, Andrews is also a registered member of the American College Health Association and an educational partner with the American Council on Exercise.</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> To find out more about the University Health &amp; Wellness initiative, visit <a href="mailto:andrews.edu/wellness">andrews.edu/wellness</a> or email <a href="mailto:wellness@andrews.edu">wellness@andrews.edu</a>.</p> Mon, 26 Jun 2017 14:27:38 +0000 Pioneer Memorial Church Sabbath School http://www.andrews.edu/agenda/46196 <p> Join PMC for a wide variety of Bible study options for all ages.</p> Mon, 26 Jun 2017 14:00:06 +0000 Pioneer Memorial Church First Service http://www.andrews.edu/agenda/46197 <p> Join Pioneer Memorial Church on the campus of Andrews University for its 9 a.m. service where Rodlie Ortiz will present his message, &quot;I Wonder What the Bible Says About__________.&quot;</p> Mon, 26 Jun 2017 13:59:49 +0000 Pioneer @ Worship Two http://www.andrews.edu/agenda/46198 <p> Join Pioneer Memorial Church on the campus of Andrews University for the 11:45 a.m. service where Rodlie Ortiz will present his message, &quot;I Wonder What the Bible Says About__________.&quot;</p> Mon, 26 Jun 2017 13:59:27 +0000
