Walk with a Doc together with Major League Baseball, FitBit, YMCA, and GirlTrek are being called on by the Department of Health and Human Services to help the nation celebrate the anniversary of Surgeon General Murthy's Call to Action on Promoting Walking and Walkable Communities.  We're asking our Walk Family to engage their networks (friends, family, co-workers, employees, communities) and join us on a two week walking challenge (see attached for slightly more detail).  How many days does it take to create a new habit?  Whatever the number, it's our hope that 14 days of walking (and competing) will get people on their way.


The Louisiana State Medical Society and Jefferson Parish Medical Society are excited to partner with Walk With a Doc to bring this nationally recognized program to the Westbank.  Take advantage of FREE fitness fun and have your medical and health-related questions answered by local physicians while you walk at your own pace.  Walk with a Doc is a 45 minute walk led by local physicians with a variety of specialties, ready to answer your medical questions.  This event is free to the public, so please bring your friends and families along.  The walking path is also stroller-friendly.  There is no fee for this event, but we ask that you please register here to help us plan for resources.


Dr. Jennifer Rajkumar, Primary Care Physician, will lead our Walk on October 18, 2016.
