Greenville area residents have the opportunity to participate in a unique program that could be good for their health.
HSHS Holy Family Hospital, in partnership with Greenville University, is initiating a “Just Walk” Walk With A Doc series.
Each month, walkers can meet the doctor at the university’s Crum Recreation Center and they will go on a walk together. Depending on the weather, walks will take place outdoors or indoors.
The first walk is Saturday, July 20 from 9 to 10 a.m. with Dr. Hannah Strong, who will speak about the benefits of walking and running.
On Thursday, August 15 from noon to 1 p.m., Dr. Kulin Oza’s topic will be sunscreen protection, and on Saturday, September 21 from 9 to 10 a.m., Dr. Bavithra Deva will address staying hydrated.
Parking in July and August is free in lot R, directly across from the recreation center, along Elm Street. In September, parking will be available in nearby lot K.
