Southern Colorado Family Medicine Encourages Healthy Habits

(PUEBLO, COLO.)Join Southern Colorado Family Medicine physicians and other members of the Pueblo community who are looking to improve their health at St. Mary-Corwin Medical Centers monthly Walk With A Doc event on Saturday, March 12, beginning at 9:00 am. Participants meet in the hospitals west Lake Avenue parking lot, just north of Minnequa Fire Station, before walking around picturesque Lake Minnequa.

Walk With a Doc is a free program offered by St. Mary-Corwin that aims to encourage physical activity in people of all ages and fitness levels. Members of the community walk side-by-side with volunteer physicians from Southern Colorado Family Medicine who can answer their health-related questions along the way.

According to the American Heart Association, walking has the lowest dropout rate of any physical activity. Walking for as little as 30 minutes a day can have many health benefits, including reducing the risk of coronary heart disease, osteoporosis, cancer, and diabetes, improving blood pressure and blood sugar, maintaining body weight and enhancing your mental well-being.
