We recommend wearing appropriate footwear, dress for the weather, and bring water.
“Walk with a Doc” was started in 2005 by Dr. David Sabgir, a cardiologist in Ohio, USA, Frustrated in the clinical setting, Dr. Sabgir invited his patients to go for a walk with him in a local park on a spring Saturday morning. To his surprise, over 100 people showed up, energized and ready to move. There are now more than 500 chapters around the globe where patients meet up to have short talk on health promotion and then take a walk with a doc.
