Walk With A Doc is a walking program for everyone interested in taking steps for a healthier lifestyle. What better way to start your weekend than on your feet making strides to help your heart and improving your general health to live longer! While you walk at your own pace, you’ll have the opportunity to have questions answered by a local physician.
“We love to get the community involved in this healthy heart initiative” states Dr. Snow. “Davidson Medical Ministries Clinic – Davidson Health Services is proud to be leading the way in helping people live longer, healthier lives.”
According to the American Heart Association, walking has the lowest dropout rate of any physical activity. Walking is low impact; easier on the joints than running. It is safe – with a doctor’s okay – for people with orthopedic ailments, health conditions and those who are more than 20% overweight. In addition, research has shown that you could gain two hours of life for each hour of regular exercise.
