Walkers at Gypsy Hill Park in Staunton

A gorgeous spring morning welcomed the walkers at Gypsy Hill Park on Saturday, June 10th for Walk with a Doc! The walk was facilitated by Julie Plumbley, MD, a pathologist at Augusta Health.

Physician Assistant students from Murphy Deming School of Health Sciences provided the walkers with information about how walking can improve sleep:

  • Walking provides longer and sounder sleep
  • The more you sleep, the more exercise your body can handle.
  • Walking helps reduce stress
  • Walking will increase your body temperature. Once your body temperature begins to decrease, it will make you feel sleepy.
  • Walking helps increase energy
  • Walking improves your overall quality of life

Join us for our next Walk with a Doc! on Saturday, June 17th at 8:30 with Dr. David Rylak. We will meet at the Dominion Shelter at Constitution Park in Waynesboro.
