It's official: Watertown is now a member community of Walk with a Doc (WWAD) & Just Walk (JW)! Walk with a Doc is an international organization whose mission is to inspire communities through movement and conversation. We are excited to offer this fantastic program in a virtual format, featuring a variety of Watertown's health professionals who will share important health information and encourage walking. There are numerous health benefits associated with walking, and it's free! As we continue to navigate life during the pandemic, our hope is to support your efforts to stay healthy and connected. Check out the steps below for more details.

This week, we're featuring Linda Corinne, Nurse Practitioner, whose talk focuses on Alcohol During the Pandemic. Watch and learn more in the video BELOW~
