Leading Cardiologists Launch Campaign to Help
South Floridians Fight Heart Disease Before it Starts
Talking with your doctor isn’t always easy. Don’t wait until you have symptoms!
You know walking is good for you, but probably don’t know how good! Don’t Just Take A Walk. Walk with a Doc! Yes, here’s your chance to walk AND talk with South Florida’s most prominent cardiologists about PREVENTING heart problems before they happen!
Dr. Jonathan Roberts MD, FACC, FSCAI and Heartwell, LLP have joined forces with the national, non-profit organization, “Walk with a Doc”. The “Walk with a Doc” mission is to encourage healthy physical activity in people of all ages and to reverse the nationwide epidemic of obesity by implementing physician led walking programs across the country. “Walk with a Doc” is a free, non-profit program for anyone interested in taking steps towards living a healthy lifestyle.
On Saturday, February 22, 2014, Dr. Roberts, Heartwell staff, patients and the community will participate in our first monthly “Walk with a Doc” event. Registration will start at 7:45 AM. The walk will take place at the Baptist Hospital Lake Pavilion at 8:10 AM and will include a talk by Dr Roberts about heart health. Future events will take place the third Saturday of each month.
Dr. Roberts believes that encouraging people to get out and walk can help reduce obesity and lead to better heart health. According to the American Health Association, walking has the lowest dropout rate of any physical activity. Walking as little as 30 minutes a day can help reduce the risks of coronary disease, improve blood pressure and blood sugar levels, help maintain proper bodyweight, and improve mental well being, in addition to many other benefits.
Bring friends and loved ones or come alone, and enjoy a refreshing, rejuvenating walk around the Baptist lake. We encourage individuals of all ages to come out and join us at this free event. For more information or to join our walk contact Jeff Kaplan at 305-200-0399 x201.
