WWAD summer

Walk with a Doc is more than “just a walk” –
it’s a prescription for a healthy life!

Walking is one of the best things you can do for your health.

Many diseases, conditions, and ailments can be prevented or even healed by participating in regular physical activities, such as walking:

Our 30- to 45-minute walks are led by providers and professionals who care about you and your health. They are a safe, fun, family- and pet-friendly, and FREE way to get some steps, learn about health, and meet new friends.

Walk with a Doc events are intended to educate and provide an opportunity for healthy exercise. If you have specific questions regarding your personal care, please contact your healthcare provider or call FHN at 815-599-7060 to let us help you find a provider who can assist with your needs.
