Inaugural Walk with a Doc - Central Park

Join Mount Sinai physicians and medical students for the inaugural walk of our monthly Walk With a Doc series! Enjoy a healthy and complimentary breakfast as well as free blood pressure screenings. All members of the community are welcome for this free event.

The inaugural event will take place on Sunday May 7th at 11 AM in the lobby of the Icahn Medical Institute. Dr. Valentin Fuster will kick off the event with a brief talk on physical activity and cardiovascular health. A walk (with faculty, staff, and patients) will follow around central park (weather permitting) or on the 'Mount Sinai Mile' indoor walking route.

    You have conflicting times is it at 11 am or 10 am? If this is with patients what speed of walking do you anticipate? Where in the park?

      11 A.M. We assume there will be a variety of walking speeds for the various groups, but one of us will lead, and one will stay at the back to ensure we don't lose anyone. The route will be near Mount Sinai Hospital and the UES. Sorry for the confusion, and we hope you can make it to the event!
