Walk with a Doc

The Kennedy Health Alliance will begin a  free monthly “JustWalk™” Walk With a Doc walking program on Saturday, June 7th at Newton Lake Park in Haddon Township, NJ.  The walk – which is open to community members of all ages -- will begin at 8:30 a.m. and runs until approximately 10 a.m.

Walkers will enjoy a refreshing and rejuvenating walk with Kennedy Health Alliance (KHA) Family Medicine physician Richard Weiss, D.O., and other KHA healthcare professionals, who will provide support and answer questions.

The Kennedy Health Alliance will host the Walk With a Doc on the first Saturday of each month at Newton Lake Park in Haddon  Township, NJ. Walkers should meet at the World War II Memorial on the Cuthbert Avenue side of the park at 8:30 a.m. and are reminded to wear comfortable shoes and to bring a water bottle.  Pre-registration is not required, but encouraged by calling 800-KHS-9007 or click here to register online.
