Exercise is the best medicine, B.C. doctors say
Don’t be surprised if instead of a prescription for pills, your doctor fills one out for exercise. Especially if you’re inactive.
Doctors across B.C. are now taking delivery of new prescription pads to use for their less-active patients as part of a new health promotion program sponsored by Doctors of B.C. (formerly the B.C. Medical Association). The program is called Exercise is Medicine.
