What is Prescription Parks?
What is Prescription Parks?
 
Prescription Parks is a movement aiming to strengthen the connection between the healthcare system and the outdoor park and trail system in local communities. 

 

Sandpoint is part of a pilot study being observed by the Surgeon General and CDC and we would love to see our patients get involved!Our bodies were meant to move. A regular walking program improves obesity, diabetes, arthritis, depression, and decreases your risk of heart disease.  Make an appointment with your provider to learn how to get started!
