Park Rx America: Doctors Prescribing Parks to Prevent and Treat Chronic Disease - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

Apr 27

Park Rx America (PRA) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to decrease the burden of chronic disease, increase health and happiness, and foster environmental stewardship, by virtue of prescribing Nature during the routine delivery of healthcare. PRA works closely with managers of publicly-accessible land and water, as well as directly with healthcare providers and their respective organizations, to "make it easy" to prescribe parks and other protected areas to their patients real-time in the clinical practice setting.

Objectives:
  • Review health reasons to spend time in nature
  • Learn how Park Rx America was planned, developed, and implemented at a "doctor's office."
  • Review recently published data on Park Rx America.
  • Summarize next steps for expansion and research of Park Rx.
