Do your children enjoy being active? Do they like winning prizes? Put these two things together and you have the GB Parks Rx program! Watch this video to learn more.
A clinically-based effort helping to prevent/reduce obesity in youth and encourage healthy lifestyles through increased connections to parks and recreation. To encourage balanced, healthy lifestyles and physical activity in area youth, Prevea Health, Wello, The City of Green Bay and the Wisconsin Beverage Association partnered to create a parks prescription program called GB Parks Rx. GB Parks Rx is a local, clinically-based program to get children outdoors and more active. Parks Rx runs all year long!
By linking together the health care system and outdoor spaces, such as local parks, our goal is to create healthier lifestyles for Green Bay area residents.
