NatureRx @ UMD Earth Day Launch


On Earth Day 2019, April 22, the University of Maryland will launch NatureRX@UMD. Shannon Jette, Jennifer Roberts and other members of the campus community have adopted this needed program to invite students to get outside and move. Built upon the success of ParkRx created by Dr. Robert Zarr, the Terps are initiating ways to encourage everyone to embrace their beautiful campus spaces while preserving their health and well being.

We are excited to be offering Qi Gong in the inspiring Garden of Reflection and Remembrance Labyrinth from 1:00 -2:00 pm Monday April 22nd. This event is open to the entire campus community; and, in case of inclement weather, will be held in the Chapel. Learn how you can enhance your health with Qi Gong. Like the terrapin, Qi Gong is slow but powerful. Energize your body as you calm your mind by moving effortlessly with one another. Could this be a prescription for a Healthy Planet?
