Our mission is to make social prescribing available to every American by 2035. Our team of volunteers aims to act as the movement’s catalyst. We build practitioner communities, bridge sectors to collaborate, and support passionate healthcare leaders as they fundraise and implement social prescribing in their clinics. See our efforts covered in Time Magazine.
We work in affiliation with the UK’s Social Prescribing Network, the Global Social Prescribing Alliance led by the United Nations, and our community of advocates across the United States. Reach out to connect!
We’d love to connect with you!
