Walk with a Doc:

Take a Step Toward Better Health

 

Simple walking improves your health. Just 30 minutes of walking a day can reduce your risk of heart disease, improve blood pressure and blood sugar, elevate mood, and reduce risk of osteoporosis, cancer, and diabetes. Join your doctors on a monthly walk to improve your health, learn about important health topics, and meet new friends interested in improving their health with you. You'll get to spend time with your physicians, get to know them, and ask medical questions in an informal, relaxed, and fun way!

Join us! It's open to anyone - we'll look for you at our next Walk with a Doc event!

  • FREE blood pressure screenings

Purpose of the Program

Cardiac and pulmonary diseases are just some of the many ailments that can significantly improve with regular exercise. Unfortunately, motivation to get started is usually lacking for many patients.

Walk with a Doc is a community outreach effort to empower patients to improve health through physical activity. It targets patients in an effort to get them to exercise side-by-side with their healthcare providers.

Just as saving money is likely to be more successful when it is done automatically, exercise, when given an approachable framework, is more likely to result in success. Therefore, a program which offers both relevant and understandable health information and a regular venue for physical activity will not only promote patient health, but also will give patients the means to positively influence their health conditions on an ongoing basis.
