Summary Making the Science and Evidence Argument for Exercise is Medicine looks at why it is important to have the evidence concerning the effect of exercise on health outcomes. The video reviews the fact that until 1996, the source of this evidence was the Surgeon General's report. Subsequently, the underlying scientific basis for the exercise is medicine concept has been the Physical Activity Guidelines Advisory Committee (PAGAC) report. Using the CRH (cardiorespiratory health) committee as an example, the video details how the PAGAC report was assembled from the collective findings of eleven outcome area subcommittees
