Walk With a Doc

About This Event

  • Event Type:Community Event
Details:

Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System (SVMHS) invites the community to Walk With A Doc. SVMHS is launching the Walk With a Doc program as a way to encourage healthy physical activity in people of all ages. Board certified physicians will make presentations on specific health topics prior to the one hour walk and answer people’s questions during and after the walk. This is a great opportunity to get to know our physicians and ask them questions in an informal, fun and healthy environment. The free walks will take place once a month on Saturday mornings.

The nationwide Walk With A Doc is a non-profit organization started in 2005 and has expanded across the United States. Participants can walk at their pace, with friends, or with a group while engaging in conversation with physicians. Some of the topics that will be covered include Advance Planning Directives, The Ideal Meal and Nutrition and Wellness.

Walking just 30 minutes a day can reduce the risk of heart disease, improve blood pressure and blood sugar, and reduce the risk of osteoporosis, cancer and even diabetes. At the walks, participants can have their blood pressure taken and then walk between 1.5- 2 miles. Healthly snacks and health information will be provided to participants.
