Need some sound medical advice? Want to get a good walk in during a perfect summer morning? Have an interest in nature?
If you answered yes to any or all of those questions, next Saturday might just offer you the perfect opportunity.
Next weekend, on July 30, The Hospital of Central Connecticut will hold its monthly Walk With a Doc program in Cheshire. The event will begin at 8:30 a.m. at the Lock Museum off Route 42 and will include a 30-minute walk along the Linear Trail.
The program, begun in Ohio by a physician looking to help patients get into shape, combines exercise and professional medical advice. Physicians lead the walk and give walkers an overview of a particular medical condition or specific health tips. Then, as the walk begins, participants have the opportunity to ask questions of the physicians.
The walk lasts for approximately 30 minutes and walkers have the opportunity to stop before then. The object, according to organizers, is not to subject participants to a rigorous workout, but to allow them the opportunity to ask advice from experts in a comfortable, relaxed environment, and to introduce them to exercise.
For more information on Walk With a Doc, see tomorrow's Cheshire Herald.
