It’s an opportunity for community members to “walk and talk” with health professionals at a designated location. The programs last approximately one hour, and offer a casual, enjoyable and personable experience with a health professional. Doctors will take five minutes to talk on a health topic of their choice and participants can ask questions freely for the remainder of the sessions. Each participant will receive one t-shirt and pedometer to help them keep track of the number of steps taken.
Doctors and other health professionals (nutritionists, dietitians, mental health providers, exercise physiologists, etc.) lead the walks.
All community members are invited to walk!

We want to give back to our communities. The program provides participants with an opportunity to ask health-related questions outside of an office setting and get one-on-one time with a health professional. We want our communities to get out there and actually exercise with a health professional. Walk the talk!
If you are a doctor or health processional, please reach out. We also need help with registration on the day of the event.
