Doctors and medical professionals in Frederick County, it’s time to practice what you preach.
The City of Frederick Parks and
Recreation Department, Frederick County Parks and Recreation and the
Frederick County Health Department are launching a program this spring
called “Docs in the Park,” where medical professionals and doctors get
outside, move and prescribe nature and outdoor activities to patients.
This initiative, modeled on a
similar successful program in Baltimore City, is part of Frederick
County’s Local Health Improvement Plan addressing Wellness and
Frederick County Parks and
Recreation is searching for volunteers from the medical field (you don’t
have to be a doctor) to participate in featured events this spring and
summer, including a nature fest, a summer fest and a pumpkin patch
You can also participate by
keeping a “toolbox” of “Docs in the Park” materials in your office,
including posters, brochures and a “ParkScription” pad.
