Columbus Community Hospital is encouraging area residents to take a step toward better health with their Walk with a Doc events. The new program brings community members and doctors together once a month, released information says.
Walk with a Doc will take place the third Tuesday of each month, beginning from 5:30-6:30 p.m. June 19. Locations and physicians change each month, but the mission stays the same.
“Coming together as a community of people for the purpose of health is one of the biggest benefits of the Walk with a Doc program,” said Dr. Luke Lemke, family practice physician at Columbus Medical Center through a released statement. “The three goals of Walk with a Doc events are to educate, exercise and empower people to live their best life.”
The Walk with a Doc event encourages physical activity in people of all ages in order to reverse the consequences of a sedentary lifestyle. While participants walk at their own pace, they will have the opportunity to get their health questions answered by local physicians.
“There are a number of very exciting things happening in the name of health and wellness in Columbus and this will be one of them,” Lemke said.
It’s a great way to get out, get active and enjoy all the benefits that come from walking. Each event will last about an hour. No registration is necessary and no special gear is needed.
