Live better, longer!
Prescription to Get Active (RxTGA) is an evidence-based, and practically engineered solution that enables health care professionals to promote physical activity to their patients in a positive and sustainable manner. Movement is medicine; with unlimited refills, the only side effect is joy!

We have known for decades about an increasingly problematic health crisis – sweeping, chronic sedentary behaviour. In 2021, ParticipACTION identified that Canadians received a grade of 'F' in this area, meaning that we have a long way to go in reducing the hours we spend being sedentary. This issue is negatively impacting our health care system and the quality of life for most Canadians. However, RxTGA is making tremendous strides in helping improve our 'grade-level' by connecting primary care and the fitness and recreation industries.

In this presentation, Jeff Tareta, Executive Director of Prescription to
Get Active (RxTGA), and Dr. Erin Pearson, Associate Professor Lakehead
University will share with you the innovative service delivery model that
has been developed that addresses the issue chain of sedentarism and how
you can support this initiative to get more people active more often. We
want people to THRIVE, not just survive!

This presentation is from 9:00 - 10:30 am on January 31, 2023.

Jan 31, 2023 09:00 AM in Edmonton
