Take a step toward better health! Join SGMC for Walk with a Doc! South Georgia Medical Center’s Internal Medicine Residency Program is excited to launch a local Walk with a Doc program in Valdosta. Walk with a Doc is an international non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire communities through movement and conversation. This doctor-led group is a fun and safe place to get some exercise, interact with medical professionals in a casual environment, improve your health, and meet new friends. The event is FREE and all are welcome! Registrants will receive a free t-shirt.
