Flaget Memorial Hospital Invites Community to Walk with a Doc

Bardstown, Ky. (July 26, 2015)—Flaget Memorial Hospital, part of KentuckyOne Health, will host its monthly Walk With a Doc event on Saturday, August 8, 2015.  The event will feature Atam Abbi, MD, with KentuckyOne Health Primary Care Associates, who will discuss exercising just for the fun of it.

The monthly event is part of a nationwide program that empowers people to improve their health through physical activity by exercising side-by-side with their health care providers.

Events take place on the second Saturday each month at 10 a.m. The walks begin at the Old Courthouse Building downtown (One Court Square). All are welcome; participants are encouraged to invite family and friends to walk together toward a healthier lifestyle.

According to America Walks, brisk walking has been shown to reduce body fat, lower blood pressure, increase high-density lipoprotein, and even reduce risks of bone fracture. Not only that, it is also associated with lower mortality rates from cardiovascular disease and cancer.
