Parks Prescription Gives Way to Healthier Green Bay

Green Bay Press Gazette: A program in Green Bay, called the Parks Prescription Program aims to promote healthier lifestyles through physical activity, raise awareness of the dangers of childhood obesity and increase use of city parks in partnership with children's healthcare providers. Doctors that participate in the program screen patients ages 6 to 13 for excessive weight and will write “prescriptions" for those who could benefit from more activity to participate in the Green Bay Parks Department's free, 10-week Summer Playground Program.
