Walking has been proven to be one of the best exercises to improve overall health. Even small walks have been shown to improve cardiovascular health, mental health, type 2 diabetes, depression, and a whole range other health issues. Walking is a simple step in developing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle throughout all stages of life and it’s also a great way to get outdoors and see some of Indy’s great places! On June 29, join Dr. Carrie Leathers, an Eskenazi community physician for a walk on Indy’s award-winning Monon Trail. The walk will include a walking discussion of the new physical activity guidelines for older adults from the Move Your Way campaign and will explore other health topics including ways to incorporate balance and muscle strength training into your walking routine. Although the program will include tips for older adults, kids and all ages and all abilities are welcome to attend as the walk will be tailored to the participants that take part inn the walk. This event is free and bilingual. Participants are encouraged to register to ensure their spot on the walk.
