(EFFINGHAM, IL) – Want to get ready for swimsuit season? Then join HSHS St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital at their next monthly “JustWalk™” Walk With a Doc walking program on Saturday, April 21 at 9 a.m., as we head back outside to walk at the TREC Trail. Walkers should meet in the Effingham Performance Center parking lot. For those unable to walk on the trail, a doctor will be available to walk with walkers in the EPC parking lot.
 
Walkers will enjoy a refreshing and rejuvenating walk on the walking track with Ryan Jennings, MD, St. Anthony’s Chief Medical Officer; Navi Arora, MD, Internal Medicine; and other health care professionals, who will provide support to the walkers and answer questions during the walk.  Prior to the walk, Dr. Arora will give a brief presentation.
 
This is a FREE program and pre-registration is not required. Walks will be held monthly, on the third Saturday of each month.  During the winter months (November through March) and when there is inclement weather, the walks will be held at the Workman Sports and Wellness Complex.  In the spring, summer and fall seasons (April through October), the walks will be held at outside locations.
 
For cases of inclement weather, please check the hospital’s Facebook page at facebook.com/StAnthonysMemorialHospital or listen to local radio stations for notices about cancellation or changes in location.
 
“Walk With a Doc” was created by Dr. David Sabgir, a cardiologist who practices at Mount Carmel Health Systems in Columbus, OH and he has been walking every weekend since 2005. The expansion and support of the program is thanks to Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield.
