‘Walk with a Doc’ returns

Holzer Health System will host the Walk With a Doc walking program on Saturday, June 3, from 11 a.m. to Noon.

Walkers will enjoy a refreshing walk that begins at the Holzer Therapy and Wellness Center, located at 735 Second Avenue, Gallipolis, Ohio, and continue around the Gallipolis City Park. The walk will feature Robert Hess, MD, Emergency Medicine, Ohio Valley Physicians, and other healthcare professionals, who will provide support to the walkers and answer questions during the walk.

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.

Holzer encourages anyone in the community to join the walk. This is a free program and pre-registration is not required. Future walks are planned for every other weekend, and will be announced via the Walk with a Doc website, www.walkwithadoc.org, as well as at www.holzer.org and Holzer’s social media channels.

Gallipolis joins a growing list of communities nationwide that have created local Walk With a Doc (WWAD) programs. For more information about the Walk With a Doc program, contact David Stout at 740-339-2502 or email [email protected]
