YOUR WEIGHT LOSS FOR LIFE ANNOUNCES NEW WALK WITH A DOC PROGRAM
“Take a step toward better health,” says Dr. Bouda
Your Weight Loss for Life will host the first of Omaha’s “JustWalk™” Walk With a Doc walking program on Saturday, March 14th at 8:00am. Walkers will enjoy a refreshing and rejuvenating walk with Dr. David Bouda and other healthcare professionals, who will provide support to the walkers and answer questions during the walk.
Walk With a Doc is a national non-profit organization whose mission is to encourage healthy physical activity in people of all ages, and reverse the consequences of a sedentary lifestyle in order to improve the health and well-being of the country. “This program has had tremendous participation and tremendous success in many other cities around the country,” said Dr. Bouda. “I’m very pleased to be a part of this exciting and simple program that shows such improved health results for so many people.”
Dr. Bouda encourages anyone in the community to join the walk. This is a FREE program and pre-registration is not required. Future walks will be announced via the Walk with a Doc website, www.walkwithadoc.org.
The first Walk with a Doc kicks off on Saturday, March 14th at 8am, located at Your Weight Loss for Life in Rockbrook Village Shopping Center. After that walks will take place the second Saturday of each month at 8am and the fourth Wednesday of each month at 6pm.
Omaha joins a growing list of communities nationwide that have created local Walk With a Doc (WWAD) programs. WWAD was created by Dr. David Sabgir, a cardiologist who practices at Mount Carmel Health Systems in Columbus, OH and he has been walking every weekend since 2005. The expansion and support of the program is thanks to Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield.
