Daily activity is an important part of physical and mental health. To ensure British Columbians get the proper dose, BC doctors are prescribing exercise as medicine.
Rx for health pads are provided to doctors who take part in Walk with your Doc, the annual public health campaign organized by Doctors of BC. Each prescription pad contains a recommended amount of activity, benefits of physical activity, and HealthLinkBC’s Dietary & Physical Activity service hotline number.
This May 5 - 13 BC doctors will walk the talk as they host walking events for patients in their communities. Doctors — join the event that gets people moving and register to host a walk in your community at walkwithyourdoc.ca.
