>, Connecticut and Iowa proclaimed May as Exercise is Medicine (TM) month. Several cities also have pledged support by creating events featuring the initiative's principles, including Indianapolis; Tallahassee, Fla.; Eugene, Ore.; and several cities in Texas.

"The principles of Exercise is Medicine center around the importance of physical activity," said Robert Sallis, M.D., FACSM. "Project ACES really fits well with the goals of Exercise is Medicine, and I think this will be a very valuable tool in our effort to reach out to children and their parents worldwide."

The 2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommend that children and adolescents aged 6 to 17 engage in 60 minutes or more of physical activity each day, including aerobic, muscle-strengthening and bone-strengthening exercises.

"This partnership is an important action item in a long list of steps we're taking to address the issue of youth fitness and health, and is indicative of our commitment to the issue at large," said James R. Whitehead, ACSM Executive Vice President. "Exercise is Medicine is the perfect venue for our involvement with Project ACES."
