Event Description

May 20, 2013 Updated May 20, 2013 at 10:15 AM EDT

The Parkview Physicians Group has launched a new walking program, MD & Me: Walk-n-Learn. More than 70 members of the community helped kick off the first of a series of six opportunities to listen to a physician presentation on health related topics and then join the physician on a walk at the YMCA outdoor trail, near Salomon Farm Park.

“It’s important for people to be able to connect with physicians who can help guide them in making the right choices for healthier lifestyles,” said Dr. Mitch Stucky, president of Parkview Physicians Group. “Our program offers a unique way to both learn and engage in an enjoyable activity.”

During the walk, community members were invited to ask questions specific to the topic from the presentation. Free blood pressure screenings and education materials were also provided.

At each session we will have:
Free blood pressure screenings and educational materials available prior to the presentation
Water and healthy snack

In case of inclement weather, program and walking will be moved indoors to Parkview YMCA, 10001 Dawson’s Creek Blvd.

Future events are scheduled for:
Tuesday, June 11: Dr. Angela LaSalle, “Understanding Your Thyroid”
Tuesday, July 9: Dr. Raymond Dusman, “Know Your Numbers: Reduce Your Risk for Heart Disease”
Tuesday, Aug. 13: Dr. Michele Helfgott, “Gut Health”
Tuesday, Sept. 10: Dr. Robert Godley, “Hypertension: What Do the Numbers Mean?”
Tuesday, Oct. 8: Dr. James Edlund, “Colon Health”
