Meet the Member
Neil Peterson, Ph.D., R.N., NP-C, AGACNP-BC
To celebrate Exercise is Medicine® On Campus (EIM-OC) Month, we introduce you to an ACSM member actively working to create a culture of wellness and promote physical activity as a vital sign of health at Brigham Young University (BYU). Neil Peterson is an associate professor, graduate program coordinator and licensed family nurse practitioner. He also serves as BYU’s EIM-OC advisor. The roles allow him to teach others about the important health benefits of physical activity. ACSM staff recently connected with Dr. Peterson to learn more about his research, his involvement with Exercise is Medicine and how ACSM membership has helped him.
