Dot Rx, a low, or no, cost prescription-based program available to Dorchester residents

Dot Rx

Dot Rx is a low, or no, cost prescription-based program available to Dorchester residents at Codman Square Health Center. The goal of the program is to connect more families to experiences that promote healthier lives – including opportunities to eat healthy, get outside, and be active. We believe that when kids and families have access to positive eating, exercise and outdoor experiences, they will be empowered to make healthy lifestyle choices every day.

Patients who receive a prescription for this program will be connected with a peer health coach. This coach will help them set personal and family goals around eating, exercise, and engaging with the outdoors. Additionally, the coach will connect them with opportunities and resources available through Daily Table, the Dorchester YMCA, Healthworks Community Fitness and Outdoors Rx.

This program is run in partnership with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts and with the support of Union Capital Boston, Daily Table, the Dorchester YMCA, Healthworks Community Fitness, and Outdoors Rx, a program of the Appalachian Mountain Club.
