Walk With Your Doc May 20

Emily Sayward, Chilliwack Division of Family Practice

 

his is the eighth year of Walk with your Doc, where doctors and Nurse Practitioners across the province host free walking events for all patients and community members throughout the second week of May.

Walk with your Doc is an opportunity to promote healthy lifestyles in our community, and for doctors to connect with their patients in a non-clinical environment.

This short, free event allows less active patients who want to begin an exercise regimen the starting point to do so in a friendly environment, and enables doctors to walk the talk when it comes to prescribing exercise for their patients while also discussing the benefits of being more active.

After brief introductions and a light stretch led by the Physiotherapy Association of BC, free pedometers and water are distributed and participants are invited to join the docs on a light walk for about 30 minutes. Upon return, water and a light lunch are served.
