Outdoor Recreation Idea of the Day, December 6, 2010

More and More Doctors are "Getting It"

December 6, 2010 (Washington, DC) - Across America, more and more doctors and health professionals are directing us to go outside to stay well and get well. At the America's Great Outdoors (AGO) session in Chicago on Health and the Great Outdoors, the Institute at the Golden Gate shared both a video documenting some of these efforts and a fabulous collection of case studies of "park prescription" initiatives underway in California, New York, North Carolina, New Mexico and more.

To see the video, go here. And to download the PDF version of the report, go here.

Idea of the Day is inspired by the President's America's Great Outdoors Initiative to connect Americans to the outdoors and as well as AGO's IdeaJam blog. ARC’s submissions to the blog can be found if you click here. Additional ideas that have been submitted to IdeaJam can be found in our September 2010 newsletter, which is here.
