Walk with a Doc is a national non-profit organization that encourages heart health in local communities by organizing walks with local physicians and healthcare professionals. Walkers enjoy a refreshing and rejuvenating walk in the park with Crystal Run physicians who provide support to the walkers and answer questions during the walk.
“We really enjoyed our Walk with a Doc. It was a fun way for my family to exercise together on a beautiful Saturday morning in Goshen. Everyone that we met on our walk through Salesian Park was extremely friendly, and Dr. Nasser shared some healthy living tips that were very helpful. It is a great program, and I recommend that everyone try and get out of the house for a Walk with a Doc,” said Thomas Larsen, Walk with a Doc participant.

Interested walkers are encouraged to visit the Community Events Calendar on the Crystal Run Healthcare website for more information and to pre-register for the walk. This is a free event and pre-registration is not required, though it is suggested. Future walks will be announced via the Crystal Run Healthcare website on the Community Events Calendar as well.
“Crystal Run Healthcare’s physicians advocate a healthy lifestyle for all of our patients. Walking is a simple and convenient way to make strides toward such a lifestyle. We are excited to have the opportunity to participate in the Walk with a Doc program and walk side-by-side with the community as we all get healthy together,” said Jonathan Nasser, MD, and Walk with a Doc Team Leader of Crystal Run Healthcare.
