Prescription to Get Active was created to help motivate local communities and people across the province to become more active. The program helps clinicians support selected patients by prescribing activity, either in a facility or with different outdoor activities. Outdoor activates could include the use of local public trails, running and biking, public tennis courts. In addition, the Highland Primary Care Network has also partnered with a number of local recreational facilities to provide free sessions to patients and help them get started.
This program is intended for all levels of fitness in all age groups so it is never too early or late to start. For more information about Prescription To Get Active talk to your family doctor, or a member of the Health Management Team (HMT).
