A Walk in the Garden
Tidelands Health Family Medicine practices across the region are helping eligible patients get more physical activity through “A Walk in the Garden,” a unique collaboration between Tidelands Health and Brookgreen Gardens.
Just as they write prescriptions for medication, providers can offer qualifying patients a walking program prescription – redeemable for a free, 30-day pass to Brookgreen Gardens. To be eligible to receive a walking prescription, you must be a patient at a Tidelands Health Family Medicine practice, at least 40 years old, not physically active and have one or more cardiovascular risk factors such as hypertension or diabetes. As with all prescriptions, your provider will determine if a walking prescription is appropriate for you.
At the end of your free 30-day pass, you'll have the option to purchase a discounted Brookgreen Gardens annual pass.
As always, if you have questions about your health, please speak with your health care provider.
In this episode of Better Health Radio, Dr. James Turek talks more about A Walk in the Garden initiative, and the eligibility requirements.
