What exactly is this project about? 

Green Prescription - Healthy Lifestyle Intervention - Diabetes and Prediabetes 

Energized Practices is a collaborative project between Sport Waikato, Sport Taranaki and Sport Gisborne Tairawhiti. These three Regional Sports Trusts (RSTs) are the service providers for Green Prescription and all have contracts with their DHB’s.

Energized Practices aims to reduce the number of people with diabetes, with prediabetes or at risk of diabetes by increasing the number of people receiving consistently high quality GRx support and healthy lifestyle coaching. 

The project could be seen as a pilot within Midlands Health Network practices looking at ways to increase uptake and success of Green Prescription/healthy lifestyle coaching and support within the current structures and funding streams.
