Prescription to Get Active (RxTGA)

April 26, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Live better, longer!

Prescription to Get Active (RxTGA) is an evidence-based, and practically engineered solution that enables health care professionals to promote physical activity to their patients in a positive and sustainable manner. Movement is medicine; with unlimited refills, the only side effect is joy!

We have known for decades about an increasingly problematic health crisis – sweeping, chronic sedentary behaviour. In 2021, ParticipACTION identified that Canadians received a grade of ‘F’ in this area, meaning that we have a long way to go in reducing the hours we spend being sedentary. This issue is negatively impacting our health care system and the quality of life for most Canadians. However, RxTGA is making tremendous strides in helping improve our ‘grade-level’ by connecting primary care and the fitness and recreation industries.

In this presentation, Jeff Tareta, Executive Director of Prescription to Get Active (RxTGA) will share with you the innovative service delivery model that has been developed that addresses the issue chain of sedentarism and how you can support this initiative to get more people active more often. We want people to THRIVE, not just survive!

RxTGA is funded through Alberta Health, Alberta Mental Health & Addictions and Alberta Blue Cross. RxTGA is already being used health care professionals, like yourself in 75% of PCNs and several specialty programs within Alberta Health Services (AHS) who are successfully supporting patients to move more. Come see how you can help support RxTGA and begin to utilize the RxTGA program for your patients. This short video will provide you with an overview of how the program works.
