Start your summer on the right foot at UK HealthCare’s “Walk with a Doc” series, held both at the UK Arboretum and Fayette Mall.
“Walk with a Doc” is a walking program for everyone interested in taking steps for a healthier lifestyle. While you walk at your own pace, you’ll have the opportunity to have questions answered by University of Kentucky health experts.
The summer session of “Walk With A Doc” will begin in June and continue through October. The UK Integrative Medicine & Health program hosts this event in collaboration with UK HealthCare’s Healthy Kentucky Initiative. Walks are scheduled on the first Thursday of the month at 9:30 a.m. at the Fayette Mall food court starting June 8. Walks will also take place at The Arboretum on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month at 5:30 p.m. starting June 13.
“There are countless physical activities to choose from, but walking is a simple and inexpensive change you can make to improve your health,” said Connie Jennings, M.D., medical director of the Integrative Medicine & Health program. “Since the thought of being alone prevents some people from walking, finding a group to walk with can be enough incentive to maintain an active walking schedule.”
