Wellness Update: November

Posted By Diquan Edmonds, North Carolina Recreation and Park Association, Wednesday, November 30, 2016

Here is a quick review of our wellness content from November:


First, the NCRPA Wellness blog discussed North Carolina's food insecurity issue and ways our departments can help in providing food security for all. Next, we discussed establishing partners in park prescription programs. Thanksgiving rolled around, and the blog covered some tips on how to have a healthy Thanksgiving. We finished the month with guest blogger Dr. Marissa Tomasic, a psychologist who discussed how the outdoors promote health and well-being.


November also featured an exciting new wellness webinar! Culinary health coach Dilip Barman covered basics about healthy eating and developing cooking & nutrition programs in your department. To view a recording of this webinar, please visit our NCRPA Vimeo page.


I hope that you have enjoyed the content of the NCRPA Wellness Initiative thus far!  If you would like to contribute to any wellness content in the future, we are always looking to showcase new voices. Feel free to email me at with any inquiries.


Until next time,
