The latest issue of Outside Magazine leads with breaking news: Science’s New Miracle Drug is Free! The cover leads you inside to the article by Aaron Reuben a clinical psychologist. Reuben interviewed two of our participating Parkscriptions Providers at Family Care Network- Dr. Chao-ying Wu and Dr. Greg Anderson for the story The Nature Cure: Inside the Health Revolution that Could Change Your Life. Dr. Anderson is quoted at the end of the article for what he tells his patients, “We don’t see a lot of ads for parks on TV, but if you put the power of nature in a pill, it would be a billion dollar drug.”
Also referenced in the article is Marc Berejka from REI talking about their $1 million dollar pledge to launch Nature for Health at the University of Washington, “We are trying to catalyze this movement”.
