Christ Clinic is a non-profit medical clinic providing high quality healthcare to those who are uninsured or underinsured. Christ Clinic exists to help people who fall through the gaps and aren’t able to get much needed care without insurance.
The clinic has a long standing Patient Education department, providing education on chronic disease management and addressing obesity, diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol. We are taking the next step with our patients and giving them an opportunity to start managing their health through exercise.
Walk with a Doc is a perfect partnership to help some of the most vulnerable people in our community. According to the American Heart Association, walking has the lowest dropout rate of any physical activity. Walking is low impact; easier on the joints than running. It is safe – with a doctor’s okay – for people with orthopedic ailments, heart conditions, and those who are more than 20% overweight. In addition, research has shown that you could gain two hours of life for each hour of regular exercise! That quick stroll around the block seems a little more worthwhile now, doesn’t it?
Christ Clinic is interested in helping our patients in taking steps in living healthier lives. What an amazing way to help Christ Clinic and our patients. Please consider supporting this event, contact Christ Clinic to find out various ways you can help. Together we keep our community healthy and strong.
