Get Moving & Walk with a Wheaton Doc

Finding the time to work out and lead a healthy lifestyle can be difficult for many people. Fortunately, something as simple as walking is an easy way to get moving, and best of all – it works for people of any age and fitness level.

Benefits of Walking

  • Gives you energy and improves your stamina for everyday activities
  • Improves your mood and reduces stress
  • Helps you relax and sleep better
  • Reduces your risk for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes
  • Tones your muscles, including your heart
  • Increases the number of calories you burn, helping you lose and keep off weight

More Than Just Walking

Walk with a Wheaton Doc provides a great environment for the community to gather and get active once a month. The unique program incorporates walking as well as discussion with Wheaton physicians and covers a variety of health-related topics.

Led by Dr. Mushir Hassan, Internist, over 385 people have participated in a Walk with a Wheaton Doc event in 2015. Additionally, physicians specializing in areas like primary care, podiatry, surgery and orthopaedics join Dr. Hassan each month.
