Rock Hill, N.Y. – June 18, 2013 – Crystal Run Healthcare has partnered with Bethel Woods Center for the Arts to host a Walk with a Doc on Saturday, July 13th. Walkers of all ages and abilities are welcome to come out to enjoy the walk on the Bethel Woods grounds while the Crystal Run physicians leading the walk answer questions and provide support to them while they walk. The Crystal Run physicians that will lead this walk will be Dr. Eric Barbanel and Dr. Florence Lazaroff.
Walk with a Doc is a national non-profit organization and program that encourages heart health in local communities by partnering with healthcare organizations like Crystal Run Healthcare to organize walks with physicians and healthcare professionals. Walkers enjoy a refreshing and rejuvenating walk with Crystal Run physicians who provide support to the walkers and answer questions along the way. Crystal Run held its first Walk with a Doc last spring and the program has continued to grow ever since. Local walkers and community members enjoy the organized walks each month at various parks in the Hudson Valley.
“We are delighted to hold a Walk with a Doc at Bethel Woods. Walking is a simple and convenient way to get healthy and now the community can enjoy the beautiful landscapes and grounds of Bethel Woods while they do so,” said Jonathan Nasser, MD, and Walk with a Doc Team Leader for Crystal Run Healthcare.
The Walk with a Doc at Bethel Woods will begin at 9am. Walkers should meet in front of the Museum entrance. The walk will be approximately 3 miles in length and last about an hour.
