Enjoy a Walk with a Doc and Other Health Events

Posted on 05/31/22 by Ronald E. Roel


Got health questions? Have a talk, or take a stroll, with a doc. AARP on Long Island is sponsoring a series of free virtual presentations and in-person walking events, hosted by the Long Island Health Collaborative, an initiative of the Nassau-Suffolk Hospital Council.

“The goal is to empower people with good information and tips so they can make lifestyle changes and improve their health,” says Janine Logan, vice president of communications and population health at the Council, which represents local nonprofit and public hospitals. Half-hour Zoom presentations at 11 a.m. on June 29 and July 13 (Wednesdays) will cover topics such as arthritis and osteoporosis, and asthma and bronchitis.

They will be recorded for later viewing on the Long Island Health Collaborative’s YouTube channel.

The AARP series culminates with Walk Safe With a Doc events at Belmont Lake State Park (Saturday, Aug. 6, at 11 a.m.) and at Jones Beach State Park (Saturday, Aug. 13, at 11 a.m.). Local physicians will stroll with participants while discussing their specialties and the many benefits of walking.
