On Saturday, April 19, Renae Dorrity, M.D., Family Medicine,
will lead Minnesota's first Walk with a Doc event. Walk with a Doc will be held monthly on
the third Saturday of the month.
The program will begin at Sturges Park at 10 a.m. with a
five-minute educational session on a health topic, followed
by a walk along the lake for 30 to 45 minutes. This gives the
walkers time to ask questions and make new friends.
Participating in Walk with a Doc is free and
open to the community. New topics will be covered each month
along with a different physician or expert lead:
April 19: Why Walk with Renae Dorrity, M.D.
May 17: Nutrition 101 with Annette Fideldy, R.D.
June 21: But Exercise Hurts!! How to Avoid, Minimize, and
Treat Delayed Muscle Soreness with Glenn Nemec, M.D.
July 19: Dehydration and Summer Safety with D. Brent Simons, M.D.
August 16: Apps and Technology in Diabetes Care with Anne-Marie Lee, M.D.
September 20: Healthy Living for Prevention of Gynecologic
Disease with Krista Honsey, M.D.
October 18: Joint Health with Dana Harms, M.D.
Walking is a low-impact activity that allows people to set
their own pace. Buffalo Hospital is proud to bring Walk
with a Doc to Minnesota as it provides an
opportunity to our community members to spend some time
outdoors and get moving with a group of like-minded
individuals who are interested in increasing their activity
and improving their health.
