Walking

St. Joseph’s Hospital’s “Walk with a Doc” program is continuing at the Buckhannon Riverwalk. It is held every other Monday at 7 pm. The program encourages residents to take a step toward better health by joining in the walk. Led by a St. Joseph’s Hospital provider, the walk will begin with a brief health-related discussion followed by a 20-minute walk. Participants are asked to meet near the restrooms located in the park. The walk is free and open to the public.

The next walks are:

September 10: “Learning About Plantar Fascitis”, led by Dr. Addison Michael, Podiatrist.

September 24: “End of Life Documents”, led by Dr. Joseph Reed.
