Webinar Park Prescriptions: Nature Is the Medicine

Date: Thursday, March 03, 2016

Time: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM Eastern Standard Time

Description: There's a new treatment in town-one that prescribes parks and the outdoors to get people healthy and active. Park prescriptions is a community health initiative in which healthcare providers prescribe time in parks to prevent and treat chronic disease and promote wellness. With today's obesity epidemic and concerns that people are also spending less time outdoors, leading to a wide range of behavioral problems, partnerships between healthcare and parks present an exceptional opportunity to support healthy lifestyle behaviors. Join this webinar to learn how Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation, and Open Space Department is working collaboratively with their local university school of medicine and hospital system to prescribe an evidence-based program, Parks Rx 4Health, for overweight, obese or physically inactive youth and adults. FREE to View / $25 for CEU Option. CEU's: 0.1
