How’s your week? Any plans for tomorrow morning? Before we get to that…
We got a call from Dr. Sabgir yesterday and he let us know that he was taking the day off work (millennials, gotta love ’em). Wait. David never calls off so we were concerned. Is he sick? Hurt? In danger? None of the above. Turns out, he’s planning to try out for an international saxophone competition next week. He plays? Nope. Not a single note. We have no clue what he’s thinking, but we’re supportive. However, we had some questions.
Do you have an instructor? Nope.Watching YouTube videos? No way.At least going to practice a little bit? He hasn’t even bought the sax yet!
So why on Earth is he calling off work today?His biggest priority is preserving his hand strength to last the full 4-hour audition. He said that his hands always ache after writing the newsletter on Thursdays (they are pretty long, David…) so he’s taking the day off to rest his hands.
Weird… but whatever. Here we are without a newsletter.
Instead, we asked David if he’d be willing to host a Live Virtual Walk with a Doc event via Zoom on Saturday morning and he agreed. Sweet!
So back to the original question, are you free tomorrow morning? We’d love to have you join us for some movement and conversation! David will talk about heart health for a few minutes and then we’ll open it up for questions. If you have a smartphone, we encourage you to walk while you watch/listen. If you don’t, then just head out for a walk afterward. Sound good? Here’s how to find him:

We truly look forward to walking with you from wherever you are in the world. If you aren’t able to make it, no worries. We’ll post the video on the Virtual WWAD page and you can watch later.
Stay thirsty. Stay weird. (Or whatever David says)Bryan, Rachael, and Kaylee
PS- apparently David hasn’t thought about conserving his voice for the audition, so please don’t bring that up!
PPS- speaking of musical cardiologists… we’re big fans of Dr. Mike Rocha from Walk with a Doc New Bedford.
