About Walk with a Doc

 

Walk with a Doc was founded in 2005 by Columbus, Ohio cardiologist David Sabgir, as a way to encourage healthy physical activity, with the goals of reversing the consequences of a sedentary lifestyle and improving the health and well-being of our country. The Walk with a Doc program now has chapters in 19 states. The Madison Parks chapter is the first in Wisconsin.
