Columbus Walk with a Doc Leader Sign-Up
Step 1: Learn about Walk with a Doc
Walk with a Doc (WWAD) is an international nonprofit organization that was started in 2005 right here in Columbus by Dr. David Sabgir, a cardiologist with OhioHealth. Our doctor-led walking groups are a safe, fun, and FREE place to get some steps, learn about health, and meet new friends. Walk with a Doc now takes place in hundreds of communities throughout the world and we’ve partnered with the City of Columbus since 2013 to host bi-weekly walks in several local neighborhoods.
Step 2: Sign Up
We’re looking for healthcare professionals to lead Saturday morning Walk with a Doc events from April – October 2023. We would love to have you lead one event or as many as you would like! You’ll give a brief health talk at the beginning of the event then spend the rest of the hour walking and chatting with participants.
Step 3: Prepare for the Walk
- Complete the Walk Leader Training if this is your 1st walk (chapter # 4552)
- Prepare your brief 5-minute talk on whatever subject you’d like (let us know if you need help coming up with ideas).
- Start inviting your patients and staff to join you at the walk.
- Our team will email you some reminders and helpful tips before your event.
