It’s time to shake off the winter blues and get up and get moving – at this Saturday’s (Feb. 3) “Walk With A Doc” event presented by the Union Hospital Community Health and Wellness program.
Area native Dr. Kristen Henry of Myers & Miller Podiatry will be on hand to greet walkers and present a health-related discussion for the free monthly walking event that begins at 9 a.m. in the hospital cafeteria.
The entire event is free and no pre-registration is necessary. A free healthy snack – Warm Berry Cobbler – and water also will be provided by the Union Hospital Nutrition Services staff.
For more details, call (330) 308-3599 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dr. Henry sees patients of Myers & Miller Podiatry, which has offices in Dover, Millersburg, Newcomerstown, Sugarcreek and Uhrichsville. Dr. Henry is a graduate of the Ohio College of Podiatric Medicine and served a residency at Alliance Community Hospital.
Walkers will hear a health-related message from Dr. Henry and take a rejuvenating walk on the hospital’s indoor or outdoor walking trails, which are both available during the event.
