CORPUS CHRISTI, TX — If a quick walk around the block is a regular part of your physical fitness plan, then there are some people you will want to meet!

On Thursday, the Nueces County Medical Society will host their monthly 'Walk With a Doc' event at 5 p.m. at the Hector P. Garcia Memorial Family Health Center (2606 Hospital Blvd.).

Walking is one of the simplest and best things people can do as they try to live a long, high-quality life, and the 'Walk With a Doc' concept is simple: Each month, physicians in communities across the nation invite their patients and community members of all ages to join them for an invigorating walk. A brief bit of information is shared on a current health topic, and the walk begins! Along the way, doctors and other health care professionals engage in conversation with those walking and answer any questions that come their way.

Everyone is encouraged to spend the hour walking their own pace and district. Walkers will meet at the entrance to the clinic.

Locally, Dr. Alma McDaniel and Dr. Yvonne Hinojosa are among those who take the lead in this fun experience.
