We are pleased to offer a free webinar entitled: “How Park Prescriptions Can Improve Public Health and Wellness” on August 25 from 3 to 4:30 PM.

Learn about the tools that public health officials and medical providers have developed to prescribe "Parks" and promote health and wellness. Then join the interactive discussion!

The featured speaker is Dr. Stacy Beller Stryer who is a board certified pediatrician and associate medical director for Park Rx America, where she educates providers, schools and park agencies on benefits of nature and nature prescriptions; and works with the core team to strategize ways to move this mission forward. She is also a frequent speaker at conferences and other media outlets and has published on this topic. Dr. Beller Stryer served as the health promotion and disease prevention coordinator within the Indian Health Service, and a pediatric subject expert for an online health website, Revolution Health. She also works with her local school system to increase awareness and promote outdoor classrooms and green schoolyards and serves on Governor Hogan’s task force for "Project Green Classrooms.” She wants others to benefit from nature as much as she has through the years.
