Description

The benefits of treating chronic disease, one park prescription at a time.

Presented by Doctors for the Environment Australia, this free event features Dr Robert Zarr. Dr Zarr is the founder and medical director of Park Rx America, a not-for-profit organisation committed to:

  • decreasing the burden of chronic disease;
  • increasing health and happiness; and
  • encouraging environmental stewardship.

Scientific studies show that spending time outdoors in natural settings can improve our health. Time spent in nature can help a broad range of disease, including diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity and depression, across all ages.

Park Rx America works with park agencies, healthcare providers, academic institutions and government departments to create a scalable park prescribing model.

Hear founder Dr Zarr speak about the program at this free event. Registration is essential.

Presented by Doctors for the Environment Australia, Impact and the Tasmanian University Medical Students' Society (TUMSS).
