Walk with a Doc
Sometimes you need a little extra encouragement to get your body moving.

Even the thought of taking a short walk can be exhausting when you aren't used to it. Typically, those who have the least desire to become active are the ones who need it most.

Dr. David Sabgir founded Walk with a Doc to encourage people to get active. People can join up with walking groups around the world to get moving in a very welcoming environment. Walkers range from joggers to people with walkers to families with dogs.

Dr. Sabgir joins Melanie Cole, MS, to share how Walk with a Doc is changing lives.
