Nature Sacred
Green spaces have clear potential to reduce stress and improve health and wellbeing, prior to The Green Road, little research had been conducted to examine their effects in military installations. Joining a group of scientists, Dr. Esther Sternberg, BIO5 member and Research Director at Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona, to develop the idea behind the Green Road, intentionally designed green space that would be used as a health intervention and to use the space as a study site for new research documenting nature’s role as a therapeutic. This PeerJ article is an output of that project.
