Walk with a Doc!
September 26 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Did you know that walking is one of the best things you can do for your health? Numerous studies point to the health benefits of spending time in nature, and with more than 50 miles of trails, the Wissahickon is a great place to get in your daily dose of green. Join Dr. Anna Jo Smith and Emily Smith, nurse practitioner, for a morning walk in the Wissahickon to learn about how green space can help reduce your risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and some cancers, including breast and endometrial cancer, and improve mental health, mood, and sleep quality!
This event is made possible by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, as part of the Walk with a Doc statewide effort to advance health and wellness through nature.
