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.
