Flaget Memorial Hospital to Host Walk with a Doc July 11
Bardstown, Ky. (July 8, 2015)— Flaget Memorial Hospital, part of KentuckyOne Health, will host its monthly Walk With a Doc event on Saturday, July 11, 2015. 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.
The July event will feature Dr. Paula Johnson, with Primary Care Associates, who will discuss how exercise impacts maintaining overall good health.
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.
