INTGEN Pathways to Nature: Connectedness to Health

Taking time to breathe in the air, feel the sun and wind, visit special waters or landscapes, or look at plants and animals - the place of parks and nature in the cycles of life is universally valued. We celebrate our special moments, find healing and strength through our struggles! Based on movements in green/social/parks prescribing and in lessons learned from community-engaged research, Sonya Jakubec (RN, PhD) will share evidence that parks and nature offer a valuable intervention for people of all abilities across the lifespan. Stories and exploration of pathways to nature connectedness will inspire you to incorporate nature more intentionally into your health practices - and everyday life!


Dr. Sonya Jakubec (RN, PhD) is a Professor at the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Mount Royal University in Calgary, Alberta. A community health nurse for over 30 years, Sonya studies the health and environment connection, with a focus on parks and nature-based interventions for health and wellbeing across the lifespan, in disability, dementia, dying, death and grief care. You can find her walking in Calgary's urban parks, community gardening in her neighbourhood, and xc skiing and hiking in the foothills and mountains.
