Walk the Talk with your community!
Since 2010 Walk With Your Doc, has helped physicians and patients build healthier relationships. By hosting or attending a Walk With Your Doc, you are “walking the talk” about the benefits of daily activity while demonstrating to your patients that you care about their well being.
Doctors and event organizers will receive support every step of the way with posters, pamphlets, balloons, pedometers, communications support and much, much more.
Event organizers can host a walk by registering as a host. Doctors of BC will respond within 2 days.

The Physiotherapy Association of British Columbia is once again partnering with Doctors of BC for Walk With Your Doc, a great opportunity to connect with communities across the province to walk and talk about the benefits of being physically active.
BC physiotherapists invite all walk hosts to Ask a Physio to lead a warm up and stretch and walk side-by-side with them at any of the Walk With Your Doc events province-wide. Simply indicate your interest when you sign up to host a walk and PABC will get in touch.
If you are a physiotherapist and would like to join a walk, please contact PABC here.
