Seeking Active Physicians!

Through our efforts to Connect Physicians in Community, MSMP is in participation with Walk With A Doc and are seeking active physicians to lead monthly walks.

The Walk With a Doc model involves MSMP providing a venue for a one-hour walk, led by selected physicians, who will promote the walk to their patients. Patients become motivated by walking with their physicians on a semi-regular basis and in-turn become healthier. Physicians have the opportunity to spend time with patients in a setting outside of the office and reap the same health benefits of walking as their patients! 

Our days are emotionally, mentally and physically challenging. Too often, we burn through the day, using up all of our reserves, instead of recharging and refueling. The Medical Society challenges our member physicians to find ways that you can bring the health coaching you do for your patients in-clinic to the nearest walking path

The walks kick-off near mere steps from OHSU and continues along the Southwest Waterfront path towards Willamette Park. We encourage you, your patients and co-workers to join us! Meet friends, old and new, make connections and have personal conversations. Take a mental break, get outside and feel the sunshine, move your legs and breathe deeply.

Should you decide to lead a walk, you would be supplied with necessary tools, including a pedometer, t-shirt and a “prescription pad” to write down the walk details for your patients.
