Fuel Your Body & Brain with Walking & Conversation

Important Message!
Thank you for your dedication and commitment to our monthly Walk With A Wheaton Doc events! Walk With A Wheaton Doc has been a wonderful experience in connecting physicians, clinical staff and community members together while broadening our minds on many important health topics and walking towards a healthy lifestyle.

At this time, we need to push the "pause" button as our Walk with a Wheaton Doc is going on hiatus. We are going to step back and assess this wonderful program and its impact in our community in the coming months.

We do not have an exact date when our monthly walks will resume. However, we know we can count on you to continue to pursue your health care goals and your walking routines!

Check back later for updates. In the meantime ... keep walking! Keep learning! And most of all, keep smiling!

About Walk With a Wheaton Doc

Dr. Mushir Hassan, Internist, and other Wheaton doctors and staff joined all interested for a walk filled with discussion and valuable health tips. The monthly walks provided an extraordinary opportunity for health conversations and expert insights. It's just one more way we're making our community stronger. Healthier. Better.

Watch this video to hear participants explain why they got involved, why they keep coming back every month, and how they're maintaining or improving their overall health.
