Shrewsbury – Saint Vincent Medical Group will host the first of Shrewsbury’s “JustWalk” Walk With a Doc (WWAD) walking program for four Saturdays in October. Walkers will enjoy a refreshing and rejuvenating walk with internist Dr. Nandana Kansra and other healthcare professionals, who will provide support to the walkers and answer questions during the walk.
Walks will be held Oct. 3, 10, 17, and 24, beginning with registration at 8:45 a.m. at the bandstand at Dean Park, 805 Main St. The walk will be held rain or shine. Walkers are encouraged to walk as little or as much as they feel comfortable doing.
Walk With a Doc is a national nonprofit organization whose mission is to encourage healthy physical activity in people of all ages, and reverse the consequences of a sedentary lifestyle in order to improve the health and well-being of the country.
“This program has had tremendous participation and tremendous success in many other cities around the country,” said Dr. Nandana Kansra. “I’m very pleased to be a part of this exciting and simple program that shows such improved health results for so many people.”
Kansra encourages anyone in the community to join the walk. This is a free program and pre-registration is not required. Future walks will be announced via the Walk with a Doc website, www.walkwithadoc.org and the Saint Vincent Medical Group website, www.StVincentMedGroup.com.
