From our friends at Ohio State
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.
Getting started is easy. First, if you're not already a TMA member, join today and the program start-up is FREE (a $3,000 value). Secondly, email founder David Sabgir, MD or contact their office by phone at (614) 714-0407.
Walk With a Doc Texas is funded by a grant from the TMA Foundation with generous support from the TMAIT, BCBSTX, and Prudential. TMA members benefit from the grant in many ways. From start-up costs and marketing materials, to liability insurance and administrative support from the WWAD team, your event is sure to be a success.
