S4E6 — Meet the Doctor Prescribing Nature for Anxiety, Depression, Obesity, and More with Dr. Robert Zarr of Park Rx America
This week, I am joined by Dr. Robert Zarr, board-certified pediatrician, founder, and medical director of Park Rx America (PRA), to discuss how seeing Richard Louv speak on his book, Last Child in the Woods, changed the course of his medical practice, why and how he prescribes nature to his young patients and their families, how technology can make nature-rich areas accessible to all, and why spending time in and around nature is the single most important first step to improving both human and planetary health.
