What is Walk with a Doc?
Walk with a Doc is an opportunity for community members to “walk and talk” with health professionals. The programs last approximately one hour, and offer a casual and personable experience with a health professional. Doctors will take five minutes to talk on a health topic of their choice and participants can ask questions during their walk. A limited number of participants will receive a free pedometer and t-shirt.

Who can join the walks?
The Walk with a Doc program is open to the entire community and everyone is welcome to participate, including patients, their family members and Piedmont employees.
