PHPR's Global Vision - We want Colorado communities that are healthy, active, happy and safe.
In November 2019, Jo Burns Connects was part of the multi-sector team who led and reported on the Colorado Rx for PRONTOS (short for Prescriptions for Parks, Recreation, Outdoors, Nature, Trails and Open Space) workshop: a convening of those invested in local parks, open space, healthcare, and the outdoors. All who gathered see the importance of nature’s ability to promote healthy bodies and minds. The workshop enabled the collection of information on the many prescription programs for parks, recreation, outdoors, nature, trails, and open space active and emerging across the state.
