Help support your MeetupChip in
Calling all healthcare professionals who would like to keep themselves fit and healthy, just like we ask our clients and patients to do! This group is for nurses, counselors, social workers, doctors, psychologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, massage therapists, recreational therapists, wellness and health coaches, occupational therapists, accupunturists, and other health professionals. To join the group, you must be a currently licensed, certified, or retired health professional. So often, we are so busy helping others, we have limited time for our own self care. The purpose of this group is to help remedy that, along with opportunities for networking, socializing, attending wellness events, and getting outside with others. We will meet at Herrick Lake Forest Preserve in Warrenville most days for walks, but locations may vary. Most walks will be 30-60 minutes long with occasional longer ones added. Friends are welcome, including our canine friends! In addition to walking, we sometimes meet at Arrowhead Country Club in Wheaton after summer evening walks for a light dinner for those interested. Wellness events are occasionally posted as optional activities, but typically charge a fee. <br>We have a great group of caring professionals.
Generally, if weather is too cold (below 20 degrees) or if there is rain expected, the walk is cancelled. Please watch for cancellations.
Due to a recent price increase to create and maintain a meetup (currently $89 every 6 months for this group) there is a $10 fee per participant, starting Feb 2015. Please pay me on the first walk you attend. I usually attend most of the walks.
On that note, if a member has not been active on walks in a 6 month period, he or she will be removed from the group. Hopefully, members who join the group intend on actually walking or attending other posted events!
To your health,
