Numerous efforts by outdoor recreation organizations, health care providers, land managers, conservation advocates, and community-based initiatives around the world are underway to advance and promote the health benefits of spending time outside. To understand the scope of this work, the Health and Nature Webinar series’ first chapter "The Health & Nature Movement" provides a high-level overview of the opportunities and challenges facing a united coalition of stakeholders working to advance the health benefits of nature. In this first webinar of the chapter, Dr. Michael Suk from the American Health Association & Giesinger Health System presents an overview of how nature can be used as medicine, from a pubic health perspective.
