About Our Wellness Programs
Parker Place’s health and wellness center is Annapolis’ most innovative family resource. Our wellness programs are open to all children, teens, parents and caregivers looking to build a foundation for a lifetime of wellness.
In everything we do, we strive to achieve three objectives:
to embrace cooking, nutrition, exercise, and emotional well-being for lifelong health
Guide Parents and Caregivers
in supporting their family’s success in developing healthy habits
Serve Our Community
by collaborating with schools, organizations, special interest groups, and families to customize classes and resources for their specific needs
In today’s society, where adopting a healthy lifestyle can be challenging, Parker Place aims to offer families in the Annapolis area a community where health matters and where a team of registered dietitians, professional counselors, certified trainers, dance instructors, and culinary experts lead and inspire you through every step of your journey. Our founder and medical director, Dr. Elizabeth Parker, believes that getting the entire family involved is essential to sustaining a healthy lifestyle. For that reason, we offer wellness center classes and resources for every member of the family and tailored to specific age ranges and interests.
The needs of our community are always front and center at Parker Place, which is why our programs are always evolving. We constantly seek to understand the barriers that might prevent our participants from practicing the healthy habits they learn here in their daily lives. We aim to provide resources to help those members, whether that be developing a new nutrition topic, bringing in a special speaker, or modifying a class for a particular age group or ability level. We also collaborate directly with schools, organizations and special interest groups to create programming just for them, and we always welcome suggestions and inquiries.
Our health and wellness center is an invaluable resource for children who are experiencing, or at high risk for, lifestyle-related medical conditions. However, it serves the same function for healthy, active children and parents, too, which is why we offer our programs not only to Dr. Parker’s medical patients but to all families. Our goal at Parker Place is to welcome everyone into a thriving and supportive community that supports families in leading healthy, happy, and successful lives – together.
