PaRx: A Prescription for Nature

The New Brunswick Medical Society is pleased to welcome PaRx, Canada’s first national, evidence-based nature prescription program to New Brunswick.

PaRx is an initiative of the BC Parks Foundation, driven by health-care professionals who want to improve their patients’ health by connecting them to nature. Featuring practical resources like quick tips and patient handouts, its goal is to make prescribing time in nature simple, fun, and effective.

Making nature time an essential part of your lifestyle is one of the best choices you can make for your health. Backed by hundreds of scientific studies over several decades, increasing your green time can have a wide range of positive effects, from a healthier heart and immune system and reduced stress in adults, to better eyesight and brain power in kids.
