What is the Prescription To Get Active program?

This is an exciting program developed by family doctors to help encourage people who are not getting enough exercise to become more active. Family doctors and other health care providers who are part of the Peaks to Prairies Primary Care Networks first identify patients who could benefit from more exercise. Then they fill out a special prescription that provides details on how their patients can act on that recommendation. You can choose whatever type of physical activity that suits you. To help provide even more options, 7 local recreational and wellness facilities have joined with the Peaks to Prairies Primary Care Network and will recognize and support these unique prescriptions. Click the logo below for more information on the Prescription to Get Active program.

Our Patients Tell Us…

This is Cane's story: “My experience is excellent. If it was not for the Primary Care Network and especially Cheryl the RN, I could not have achieved my goals that efficiently and quickly. I was so fortunate that [my family physician] recognized my problem and referred me so quickly.  Also I started seeing the Exercise Specialist already.  At my first visit, he gave me tips that I would never thought of on my own.  I am so grateful that such a service is available and hope it always will be there. Good job!”
