Walk with a Doc was started in 2005 by Dr. David Sabgir, a cardiologist in Columbus, Ohio.
Frustrated with his inability to affect behavior change in the clinical setting, Dr. Sabgir invited his patients to go for a walk with him in a local park on a spring Saturday morning.
To his surprise, over 100 people showed up, energized and ready to move.
Since that first event in 2005, Walk with a Doc has grown as a grassroots effort with a model based on sustainability and simplicity.
The reach of Walk with a Doc now extends all around the globe with over 500 chapters worldwide, including Walk with a Future Doc chapters led by medical students!
We had a great conversation with Dr. Sabgir about the walk, and his amazement of the growth worldwide. He also offers up some very specific positive physical and mental changes that can happen to all of us when we start walking.
We would love to hear from you.
