Wellness Update

Posted By Diquan Edmonds, North Carolina Recreation and Park Association, Thursday, February 2, 2017


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

The new month started with a wellness initiative review of 2016. Martin Luther King Jr. Day rolled around, and we discussed ways that volunteerism is good for community health. Additionally, the wellness blog covered two topics regarding starting a park prescription program: needs assessment & implementation and evaluation. Finally, guest blogger Dr. Marissa Tomasic joined us to discuss the role that parks and recreation professionals have on health initiatives.

Our January Wellness Webinar was a great one. Chamreece Diggs and Jason McCray of High Point Parks and Recreation joined us to discuss their Kosmic Dodgeball program. Click this link to check it out!

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,
