Learn about how walking can become a core component of more healthy living. In a recent customer survey, MDOT learned that, although few Marylanders can walk to work, those who do cite health benefits as their primary motivation. Whether it is a quick trip to a local destination, a sidewalk stroll in a local park, or a hike along one of Maryland’s trails, many groups are working to provide safe and equitable access to healthy walking opportunities. Speakers from AARP, the Maryland Department of Health, and the founder of Walk with a Doc will discuss how to develop and deliver innovative planning and programming to support healthy walk activities. Panelists: Michael B. Friedman, AARP Olubukola Alonge, MD, MPH, Maryland Department of Health Dr. David Sabgir, MD, Cardiologist and Founder of Walk with a Doc
