Active Doctors Equals Active Patients: An Interactive Workshop features an Exercise is Medicine workshop from the 2010 ACSM annual meeting. In detailed fashion, the DVD explores the fact that physicians who live healthier lifestyles tend to be more likely to counsel their patients about the need to be physically active and adhere to sound lifestyle-related habits. The DVD looks at whether the relative health of physicians matters to their patients and whether changing the lifestyle of physicians can have an impact on their likelihood of prescribing physical activity to their patients.
