Prescription Pads for a Healthy Lifestyle
The ‘Prescriptions for a Healthy Lifestyle’ program was created to assist health care providers in talking to their patients about healthy lifestyle choices. The pre-printed ‘prescription’ pads provide links to free online programs available on our websites.
Health care providers can ‘prescribe’ one or more of the health behaviors listed below to their patients.
- Physical Activity: Recommend 30 minutes of physical activity per day for those who are able, and a referral to the free Walk Around Nevada and Neon to Nature programs.
- Nutrition: Recommend five cups of fruits and vegetables every day and a referral to the free Nutrition Challenge Program.
- Tobacco Use: Call 1-800-QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669) for information on a free tobacco quit line.
Order free prescription pads by calling (702) 759-1270 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The prescription is only available in Spanish as a download. We can only mail Rx pads to residents of Southern Nevada. Rx pads are mailed free of charge.
