    • What is Walk With a Doc?

      Walk with a Doc is a non-profit organization that encourages healthy physical activity in people of all ages, and seeks to reverse the consequences of a sedentary lifestyle in order to improve the health and well-being of the country. Walk with a Doc was started in 2005 by Dr. David Sabgir, a board certified cardiologist in Columbus, Ohio who practices with the Mount Carmel Health System. 

      TMA is now part of this national grassroots movement. The program has a proven track record of helping people commit to a healthy lifestyle through monthly, physician-led walks throughout Texas. Strengthen your trusted leader role in your community and participate in a healthy activity with your patients.
