    Alt Tag

    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. Walk With a Doc Texas has a proven track record of helping people commit to a healthy lifestyle through monthly, physician-led walks throughout Texas.
