Promoting physical activity within health care and throughout the community

Park Rx America 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 health care by a diverse group of health care professionals. Park Rx works closely with managers of publicly-accessible land and water, as well as directly with health care professionals and their respective organizations, to "make it easy" to prescribe parks and protected areas to their patients real-time in the clinical practice setting.

Walk with a Doc encourages healthy physical activity in people of all ages and seeks to reverse the consequences of a sedentary lifestyle in order to improve the health and well-being of the country. Doctors give a brief presentation on a health topic and then lead participants on a walk at their own pace.
