Franciscan Health’s goal with this program is to give the community an opportunity to walk with medical professionals for one hour every Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. from Sept. 18 - Oct. 16, 2018.
One hour walks will begin with a physician or clinical staff member with a brief talk on a topic related to their field.
A snack and water will be provided. All activities will occur, regardless of weather (unless conditions are deemed dangerous).
Updates regarding the program will be provided via email if an address is provided.
Walks will take place on our Franciscan Walking Trail, with the group departing from the trail access near the 3920 Building, at 3920 St. Francis Way on the campus of Franciscan Health Lafayette East in Lafayette.
The mission of the national Walk with a Doc program is to encourage healthy physical activity in people of all ages, and reverse the consequences of a sedentary lifestyle in order to improve the health and well-being of the country. The program was created by Dr. David Sabgir, a board-certified cardiologist who practices with Mount Carmel Clinical Cardiovascular Specialists in Columbus, Ohio. The nonprofit program has 148 chapters, mostly in the US, offering free doctor-led walks in parks and malls. To learn more about the national program, click here.
