About Us

About SWACSM

As a regional chapter, our primary purpose is to work with the national organization, The American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) "....to promote and integrate scientific research, education, and practical applications of sports medicine and exercise science to maintain and enhance physical performance, fitness, health and quality of life."  The Southwest Regional Chapter of The American College of Sports Medicine includes six states in its permanent charter granted in 1985. The states include: Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah.

The primary goals of the SWACSM regional chapter are to:
