Newnan, Ga. — Piedmont Newnan Hospital invites all members of the Coweta County community to take part in the next Walk With a Doc on Saturday, Sept. 27 at Carl Miller Park, 70 Sewell Road in Newnan.
Maria Goyco, M.D. of Piedmont Physicians Group in Newnan will lead the walk. Dr. Goyco, who is bilingual in Spanish and English, has been in practice for 15 years in the Metro Atlanta area. She is board certified in family medicine and is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians and the Georgia Academy of Family Physicians. She has a special interest in preventative medicine and women’s care.
Walkers are encouraged to gather at the park by 8:15 a.m. as the walk begins promptly at 8:30 a.m. Dr. Goyco will take five minutes to talk about a health topic of her choice before leading participants on a walk through the park while she answers questions from participants.
Participants will receive a pedometer to help them keep track of the number of steps taken, as well as a free T-shirt. While the event is free, registration is required by calling 877-527-3712 or visiting piedmont.org/walkwithadoc. Registration will also be available on site starting at 8 a.m.
Piedmont launched Walk With a Doc after their health needs assessment showed that one in four adults in Coweta County is physically inactive and nearly one in three is considered obese. The walks not only encourage physical fitness, but they give participants one-on-one time with a physician. The hospital had planned to hold its last walk of the year in August but, after back-to-back record turnouts, Piedmont made the decision to continue the program through November.
