Many thanks for a successful year!

Walk with a Doc is a free program of the San Mateo County Medical Association Community Service Foundation that aims to encourage physical activity in people of all ages and fitness levels. Members of the community walk side-by-side with volunteer physicians, who can answer their health-related questions along the way. Walks take place on Saturday mornings at some of our county’s most picturesque public spaces.

Our WWAD program was launched in 2012 and has grown steadily each year.  This has been our most ambitious year yet, with 30 walks at 15 different locations, from East Palo Alto to Daly City.

The feedback from walkers has been overwhelmingly positive. Here are some of their comments:

“ It is really worthwhile; it motivates us to walk in good company.”

“ I love the experience. I enjoy speaking with professionals. Thank you so much for caring and crewing the events.”

“ It’s a great idea, inspiring folks who at times need a little social encouragement to walk. It’s also a safety feature for someone like myself, who wants to recover and get moving again, knowing that, if I have a problem, there is a doctor nearby. “

This success of this program depends on our volunteer physicians, and we would like to thank the members who walked with us this year:
