Ask Your Doctor to Prescribe Outdoor Time 


The health benefits of spending time in nature are well documented. The Park Prescription (Park Rx) program builds on the power of a doctor’s recommendations to encourage patients to spend more time in nature to improve their health. Physicians at the San Mateo Medical Center and the Ravenswood Clinic are working to encourage patients and their families to spend more time at local and regional parks.
