Just Walk!


Did you know:


· In 2005 Dr. David Sabgir, a cardiologist in Columbus, Ohio started “Walk with a Doc.”

· His invitation to his patients to go for a walk with him came out of his frustration with his own inability to impact change in patient behaviour.

· The day of the first walk, 100 people showed up, ready to move!

· From here, “Just Walk” was then formed to involve all healthcare professionals, including physicians.

· The BFHT has just recently become an official chapter of Just Walk.

· At the beginning of each walk the healthcare professional will give a 5-10 minute presentation on a health topic. This is then followed by a walk at your own pace led by the healthcare professional. Each event (presentation + walk) is 1-hour in length.


 

To attend the inaugural walk, join Jake, one of our physiotherapists, on Saturday, October 15th at 9am on the Waterfront Trail across from Joseph Brant Hospital for a talk on “The Canadian 24hr Movement Guidelines.”
