Walk with a Doc

Hosted by UK HealthCare, Walk with a Doc is a walking program for everyone interested in taking steps for a healthier lifestyle. What better way to start your weekend than on your feet making strides to help your heart and improve your general health. While you walk at your own pace, you’ll have the opportunity to have questions answered by UK HealthCare physicians. Our walking schedule is kept up to date on the national Walk with a Doc website.

The UK Integrative Medicine & Health (IMH) program hosts this event on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month at 9:30 a.m. Walk with a Doc takes place at The Arboretum during spring, summer and fall; and Fayette Mall during the winter. Walking for at least 30 minutes a day can help improve your blood pressure and blood sugar levels, reduce cholesterol, and lower your risk for diabetes, colon cancer, breast cancer, osteoporosis and possibly depression. A low-impact form of exercise, walking can also be easier on the joints than running or other fitness activities.

Walk with a Doc was created in 2005 by Dr. David Sabgir, a board-certified cardiologist in Columbus, Ohio, to encourage healthy physical activity in people of all ages and to reverse the consequences of a sedentary lifestyle. More than 500 Walk with a Doc programs operate worldwide.

The program is free and open to anyone interested in improving their health and well-being.
