NMMC to Host Two Walk with a Doc Events in June
TUPELO, Miss.—North Mississippi Medical Center is hosting a Walk with a Doc event from 10-11 a.m. Saturday, June 19, and another from 1-2 p.m. Friday, June 25.
Both events will take place at the Live Well Community Walking Track on Madison Street. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about a health topic, then make some laps around the walking track at their own pace and distance. Both events are free and open to everyone.
The events are sponsored by the NMMC Advanced Practice Clinician Fellowship. On June 19, Richmond McCarty, D.O., of Saltillo Medical Clinic will speak about wellness. On June 25, Vernon Rayford, M.D., of IMA-Tupelo and nurse practitioner Anna Beth Roberts will offer tips for weight management. Masks are encouraged for those who are not adequately vaccinated. In case of rain, Walk with a Doc will move inside the NMMC-Tupelo Wellness Center.
Walk with a Doc events are scheduled at least once a month and offer a great opportunity to get out for a bit, get active and enjoy good conversation.
