March 14 is Social Prescribing Day! Social Prescribing Day is an annual celebration of the people, organizations, and communities who make social prescribing happen. Healthy Aging Alberta is currently supporting ten communities in implementing social prescribing programs for older adults. Social Prescribing Day is about highlighting the impact of social prescribing on people and communities and raising awareness of what it is, how it works, and how it changes lives.
