Nature prescriptions were named one of the top 8 global wellness trends in 2019. And it's no surpriseā€”research shows that kids and adults who spend more time in nature are happier and healthier. PaRx is breaking ground as Canada's first national, evidence-based nature prescription program. Featuring practical resources like quick tips and patient handouts, its goal is to make prescribing time in nature simple, fun and effective.

Dr. Melissa Lem is a Vancouver family physician and Director of PaRx/Park Prescriptions for the BC Parks Foundation. Also President-elect of the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment, she has been researching, writing and speaking about the nature-health connection for over a decade
