Prescription To Get Active – Primary Care Network – Edmonton Event Photography

Have you ever considered just how wonderful & efficient it would be if a Doctor could prescribe activity instead of just medication? It would be taken more seriously by the patient and be covered (check with facilities.) Well, Primary Care Network has launched just that! Nine Primary Care Network communities are involved including Edmonton, Ft. Saskatchewan, Devon, Beaumont, St. Albert, Sherwood Park and Leduc in ‘Prescription To Get Active‘.

I photographed the official launch of the program which was held at the gorgeous Don Wheaton YMCA.

There was a lot of media covering the well attended launch. TV, radio and bloggers all reporting on this momentous program.

Dr. Justin Balko (President, Leduc Beaumont Devon Primary Care Network) discussed the value for the community. Here is an article about Dr. Balko and the program.

Associate Minister Dave Rodney (Associate Minister of Wellness – Government of Alberta) also gave a speech of the importance of this program.

After speeches, the media enjoyed capturing dignitaries (Dr. Justin Balko and patient Regine Gross) riding stationary bikes and interviews (Global Edmonton’s Su-Ling Goh with Nick Parkinson – the president and CEO YMCA of Northern Alberta.)
