Encouraging Physical Activity
To help prevent/reduce obesity and encourage physical activity in area youth, Prevea Health, Wello, The City of Green Bay and the Wisconsin Beverage Association partnered to create a parks prescription program called GB Parks Rx. By linking together the health care system and outdoor spaces, such as local parks, our goal is to get children outdoors and more active in order to create healthier lifestyles for Green Bay area families.
GB Parks Rx runs all year long, helping families to get active through increased connections to parks and recreation.
