Healthy Parks Healthy Person TN is working together with healthcare providers across the state to promote spending time in the outdoors to improve the health of patients and the public.  The Park Prescription program associated with Healthy Parks Healthy Person TN gives providers a way to refer their patients to the initiative to work as a treatment along-side the other treatments already being used for many of the physical and mental health issues we face in Tennessee today.
