A recent study showed that 73% of women admit to feeling lonely. We’re simultaneously facing a fitness and wellness crisis. Despite the fact that we have more access to information about how to stay healthy than ever before, we’re having trouble turning that knowledge into action.

A regular walking practice also reduces your risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, dementia, heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis and several types of cancer.
Listen as 99 Walks founder Joyce Shulman joins Dr. Taz to discuss regular communal walking.
