Walk With A Doc: Madison, WI
Madison Parks is pleased to begin a local chapter with the Walk with a Doc program.
Walk with a Doc is a free program for anyone interested in taking steps for their health by enjoying a refreshing, rejuvenating walk in the park. Walk with a Doc was founded in 2005 by Columbus, Ohio cardiologist David Sabgir, as a way to encourage healthy physical activity, with the goals of reversing the consequences of a sedentary lifestyle and improving the health and well-being of our country. The Walk with a Doc program now has chapters in 19 states. The Madison Parks chapter would be the first in Wisconsin!
The organized walks will start in a Madison Park and will be led by a local doctor. The walks will be held at all times of the day: morning, afternoon, evening; weekday/weekends.
The physicians, specialists and healthcare professionals will provide:
- a 5 minute talk at the beginning of the event about a health topic of their choice.
- lead the walk and answer questions from participants.
Each walk will be approximately 30-45 minutes. People of all ages and abilities are invited to participate. Attendees are encouraged to bring family members, friends, and neighbors to this great event.
Join your physicians and other people looking to improve their health at our Walk With A Doc program in Madison.
