Walk with a Doc

The Lerner Center, in collaboration with the Madison County Rural Health Council, launched the Walk with a Doc program in Madison County.

Walk with a Doc was established in Columbus, Ohio, where Dr. David Sabgir was frustrated with the lack of lifestyle change he saw in his patients. He invited them to join him for a walk on a Saturday morning and to his surprise over 100 people showed.

He coined these walks “Walk with a Doc.” Now, this program is nation-wide: a local provider gives information on a health topic and then leads a walk in the community.

We’ve had several successful Walk with a Docs on our Monday Miles in Madison County. This program has been a fun and effective way to increase awareness about the Monday Mile, foster socialization among Madison County residents and connect residents with healthcare providers. These events are kid and dog friendly—there are plenty of handouts and prizes for all!
