Movement is Life

09-08-2022 • 1 hr 6 mins

Movement is Life is a podcast series from Intelligent Health focusing upon the importance and benefits of physical activity and active travel.

In our ninth episode, host Bethany is joined by our friends across the pond at ParkRxAmerica, Dr. Robert Zarr, MD, MPH, Founder & Medical Director, and Dr. Stacy Beller Stryer, M.D., Associate Medical Director.

Today, we will discover the history behind the company and the initiative of green social prescribing. As we discuss how thousands of Doctors in the US are now writing prescriptions to go outside, emphasising the importance of nature connection in greenspaces, for our overall physical and mental wellbeing. The vast majority of green spaces are free, but often many of us need help breaking our everyday routines. This ground-breaking approach has already seen some marvellous results, which we will discuss as we look at the benefits of green social prescribing to society as a whole.

Robert and Stacey also share some of their own personal experiences within green social prescribing and share a funny anecdote or two. We also, discuss the financial barriers many still face in the US healthcare system.
