Walking is one of the simplest and safest aerobic exercises you can do. It is a suitable physical activity for most people, and regular walking can help you lose body fat, maintain a healthy weight, improve your fitness and reduce your risk of developing conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis and some cancers. Walking is low impact, requires minimal equipment, can be done at any time of day and can be performed at your own pace.
Three area events will be held on Wednesday, April 3, 2013. The events are free and open to the public. Each event will consist of a 45 minute presentation by a Williamson Medical Center physician, followed by a short group walk.
