About Walk with a Doc
The Walk with a Doc concept is simple: physicians organize walks in their communities and invite their patients, their patients’ families and community members to join them. Walkers will enjoy a refreshing and invigorating walk with Richel Avery, MD, primary care physician and medical director of UT Health Verde Hills. Dr. Avery will provide support to participants and answer questions during the walk.
Walking is one of the simplest, best things people can do to live a long, high-quality life. Walk with a Doc makes it easy by providing the time, place, motivation and fellow participants for a fun walking experience.
The event is free and all are welcome! Preregistration is not required. This doctor-led group is a fun and safe place to go for a walk, learn about health and meet new friends. For more information, visit the UT Health Physicians Walk with a Doc website.
Walk with a Doc Texas is overseen by a national nonprofit organization that aims to get people active and healthy and is backed by the Texas Medical Association (TMA) in Texas.
