Prescription for Healthy Oakland is a program committed to helping seniors and families in the greater Pontiac area achieve healthier lifestyles by increasing access to fresh produce and encouraging physical activity.
The program is meant to serve uninsured or underinsured and low-income individuals that experience limited access to fresh fruits and vegetables and physical activities.
Patients receive a "prescription" to the program which allows benefits like purchasing fruits and vegetables and connecting to local physical activity resources.
Prescriptions can be filled at select local markets and grocery stores. Patients will receive voucher booklets each month to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables. ($80 a month for families, $40 for seniors, $80 for two seniors enrolled living in the same household.)
Participants must be able to commit to at least one health education session per month for a 6-month time period. Sessions will cover topics such as: fitness and exercise, goal setting, healthy eating, eating on a budget, and stress management
