The new Walking Rx Program will be available to Interfaith Community Clinics’ patients. The program was created to empower the community to take control of their health by creating healthy, sustainable habits for better heart and brain health. Patients in the program will receive an educational packet with a log and local maps to help them find new places to walk.
According to The American Heart Association, walking is one of the simplest ways to get active and stay active and can have a significant impact on one’s health by lowering risk of heart disease. The adoption of the Walking Rx will help at risk patients take control of their
health through a formal prescription of walking.
