SACRAMENTO, Calif., May 29 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Acting Surgeon General Rear Admiral Steven Galson is calling on the nation's doctors to prescribe exercise to patients who would benefit from being more physically active, and thanks to the support of the California Governor's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, over 2,000 doctors have just signed up to support this new initiative.

"I congratulate California for taking the lead in signing up health care professionals to prescribe exercise," said acting U.S. Surgeon General Rear Adm. Steven K. Galson, M.D., M.P.H. "This type of preventative medicine is important to the long-term health of California and the nation."

"Physical fitness and health are not Republican or Democratic issues, they are national issues and we're proud to be at the forefront of addressing them," said Governor's Council Chairman Jake Steinfeld. "This year, more than 150,000 K-12 students have taken the Governor's Challenge to exercise for 30 to 60 minutes a day at least three times a week and now we have more than 2,000 doctors who have just joined our team -- together we hope to help California become known not only as the Golden State, but also the Nation's Fitness State."

Exercise is Medicine is a national initiative that was launched last November by the American Medical Association (AMA) and the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). The California Governor's Council has staked out a leadership position with this initiative by signing up more than 2,000 doctors, many of them affiliated with Kaiser Permanente's Southern California Permanente Medical Group, to begin prescribing exercise to their patients immediately.
