Doctors issue prescriptions for vegetables to overweight patients

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

Doctors in New York City are writing prescriptions for vegetables.

It's part of the Wholesome Wave program which launched earlier this week.

Doctors at two New York hospitals will identify at-risk patients who need help with their weight and prescribe fruits and vegetables which they can pick up at local farmer's markets.
