Prescription for Health Programs in Michigan
This report provides an overview of the Prescription for Health style programs currently or previously operating in Michigan. Prescription for Health style programs support healthy behavior change for individuals and families through partnerships with healthcare and other providers who focus on supporting healthy eating (farmers and farmers markets) and/or community partners who provide opportunities for increased physical activity. Programs are commonly aimed at improving health outcomes for low-income patients with diet-related diseases. Not all Michigan programs are referred to as Prescription for Health, as you will see by the different program names throughout this publication. The survey included questions about program longevity, motivation for starting and maintaining the program, funding, partnerships, process, promotion, and evaluation.
