Colorado Outdoor Rx
Throughout history, people have enjoyed spending time outdoors. Only in the last decade however, has a growing body of scientific evidence emerged about nature’s health benefits. While many public health and recreation organizations realize the health benefits of outdoor recreation, it has not always been clear about how best to bring healthcare payers and providers to the table. New research related to the benefits of nature might compel businesses to include new opportunities in their wellness initiatives. In 2018 OREC released a report demonstrating current challenges and opportunities in Colorado and how partners can better plan and implement a strategy that promotes health improvement through the great outdoors.
