Have you ever prescribed Nature before? As a provider, are you ready to try something new?
How much time do you spend outside in a natural setting during YOUR free time?
Take the opportunity to capitalize on the provider burnout that has to do with prescribing the same medications and doing the same things we do every day without considerable change in our patients' lives.
For Park Agencies
We work closely with managers of public lands to ensure patient access to therapeutic time in nature.
Park Rx America has collected data on thousands of parks and green spaces, searchable by location, with results filterable by standard park attributes and features, and viewable as printable one-page Park Summaries.
We have demonstrated scalability by replicating the park prescription model in diverse park agencies and health provider organizations across the country.
We are excited to announce our newest partnership with Exercise is Medicine ® and to share these useful resources below.
