“Walking is man’s best medicine.”
Taking the first step may be the hardest part, but for a dedicated group of Dr. Beauvais’ patients, a walk with their doctor at Fort Ward Park provided the perfect impetus to get started. Last fall, the monthly Steppin’ Out walks drew a growing and enthusiastic gathering of NVFPA patients, staff members…even dogs…to enjoy the dual benefits of a brisk stroll and relaxed conversation.
“This was really a unique opportunity to meet new people and visit with old friends,” said Terry G., who also suggested extending the conversation in the future with a post-walk lunch. For Elizabeth S., walking with a group was motivational and healthful, while Margo H. found it ‘thoroughly enjoyable.’
All participants expressed an interest in continuing down this healthy path in 2017, and we’re pleased to announce our first three walks of the year:
• Friday, January 27
• Friday, February 24
• Friday, March 24
Lace up your walking shoes and join us…family, friends, strollers & pets are welcome!
