Walking to Wellness Wednesdays

Meritus Family Medicine Residency Program and Prime Time for Women launched their new Walking to Wellness Wednesdays program. Designed for individuals ages 40 and over, the free walking program takes place on the first Wednesday of each month at 12:15 p.m., at Robinwood Professional Center – Atrium.
During the first five minutes of the walking program, a physician from Meritus Family Medicine Residency Program discusses a variety of health issues including hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, smoking and mental health. Soon after, the physician leads the walking group on a 30-minute, moderately paced walk through Robinwood Professional Center.
Walking to Wellness Wednesdays builds on the already-established culture of walking in Robinwood Professional Center, but the program hopes to introduce walking to a larger community and bring more walkers into contact with the physicians from Meritus Family Medicine Residency Program
