As part of the “Walk with a Doc” movement, the City of Boulder and Boulder Community Health promote this FREE community program that combines the health benefits of walking with the chance to have questions answered by local physicians. At each walk, participants can learn about a current health topic, walk and talk with a local doctor, and enjoy free refreshments, blood pressure checks and giveaways. Cardiologist Dr. Nelson Trujillo leads the program on Saturday, August 26 from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. that includes a brief health talk on preventing heart attacks at North Boulder Park for an approximately one-mile scenic walk.
Upcoming walks include a talk on “Shortness of Breath” at Harlow Platts Park on September 9, “Shortness of Breath” at Coot Lake/Tom Watson Park on October 14, and “Diet and Heart Disease” at East Boulder Community Center/Park on November 18. All walks start at 8 a.m.
