Two New York Hospitals Trail Blaze The Wholesome Wave
Lincoln Medical Center and Harlem Hospital in New York are two of the first Hospitals in the US to prescribe fruits and vegetables to patients instead of more medications.
They are part of an inspiring and ground breaking new national program called Wholesome Wave.
This brave new program aims to help people get healthy and take charge of their nutrition with help from local farmers and nutritionists.
Patients take their prescriptions to a local participating farmers market and receives fresh fruits and vegetables. They also receive education and support from a nutritionist to support their healthy new life style.
Kudos to New York for being the first to show it's compassion and caring for their people and their communities!
