Calling all doctors & NPs
Nature prescriptions were named one of the top 8 global wellness trends in 2019. And it's no surprise—research shows that people who spend more time in nature enjoy better mental and physical wellbeing.
Physicians and nurse practitioners are invited to an online interactive workshop on Canada's first national, evidence-based nature prescription program. Learn how you can apply the PaRx program's tools to improve the health of your patients and the planet.
Date: Tuesday, May 25
Time: 7:00 - 8:30 p.m.
Register on Eventbrite
The workshop will feature Dr. Melissa Lem, a Vancouver family physician who also works in rural and northern communities within Canada. Director of PaRx—Canada's first national nature prescription program, powered by the BC Parks Foundation—and President-Elect of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, Melissa has been researching, writing and speaking about the nature-health connection for over a decade.
Dr. Lem will be joined by Jennie McCaffrey, an educator focused on facilitating connections to nature and inspiring behaviour change for the health of our planet and ourselves. Most recently Jennie worked with the BC Parks Foundation to launch the Healthy by Nature initiative.
