Walk with a Doc Hawaii Island has been walking every Sunday since May 18, 2014 and as of this writing we have registered over 1000 walkers. Medical students from the John A. Burns School of Medicine and resident physicians from the Hawaii Island Family Medicine Residency Program start each event with a short medical talk. Then everyone grabs a bottle of water provided by HMSA and starts walking around Liliuokalani Garden for about one hour. You can walk fast or slow, alone or with friends, it’s up to you!\
We do ask you to check with your doctor first if you are very overweight, have a heart condition or joint problems in your legs but walking is low impact and most everyone can benefit. You don’t need any special equipment, just a pair of comfortable shoes. See you on Sunday!
