Lace up your walking shoes and join Samuel D. Luber, M.D., M.P.H., and the Office of Graduate Medical Education at McGovern Medical School at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) for Houston’s first Walk with a Doc Texas event on Saturday, Sept. 15, from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. in Hermann Park.

Members of the community are invited to join Luber, associate professor and interim co-chair of the Department of Emergency Medicine at McGovern Medical School, and other health care professionals from UTHealth for the exciting event. Luber will spend a few minutes speaking about a current health topic and then answer any questions along the walk.

Those interested in participating should meet at the southeast corner of Miller Outdoor Theater in the park. Participants can walk at their own pace while enjoying good conversation, so don’t forget to bring a friend!

The free family-friendly event is part of a grassroots effort started by an Ohio cardiologist in 2005 as a way to motivate his patients to be active. Walk with a Doc now has more than 400 chapters worldwide. Locally, the program is backed by the Texas Medical Association. The event, hosted by McGovern Medical School at UTHealth and Hermann Park Conservancy, will take place every third Saturday of the month.

For those parking at Hermann Park, Lot C at 1500 Hermann Drive is recommended. For more information, visit https://walkwithadoc.org/our-locations/uthealth/.
