"Park Rx America" Program

The 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 healthcare. Additionally, this provides information about more local parks, greenways, and trails in Catawba and surrounding areas, and allows our clinicians to extend some of the provisions of "Kids in Parks" to these areas.

"Kids in Parks" Program

The Kids in Parks program has established a network of trails designed to provide kids and families with fun outdoor activities. Through their TRACK Rx program, our providers are promoting this program and formally prescribing our patients to get active outdoors and reconnected to nature through this exciting program.

"Walk Across America" Program:

CALLING ALL PATIENTS! 
Walk across America is a program we are running within the office with employees and patient and families who wish to join in. Join our staff and patients in counting steps and get active!  We have divided into 2 teams and we are counting our steps daily and reporting them weekly.  We are accumulating the total (2000 steps = 1 mile) and moving our “person” across the map to race across the country!  Call our office and be placed on a team and start counting!  Send a message of your weekly steps through our patient portal and be a part of the fun!
