Dr. Claiborne to Lead May Doc Walk & Talk Event

Harbin Clinic Psychologist Dr. Candice Claiborne invites locals to get outside, walk with friends and possibly receive some medical advice in the process during the May meeting of the Harbin Doc Walk and Talk Series.

The event takes place on Tuesday, May 17 at Bridgepoint Plaza on Second Avenue in Rome at 5:30 p.m. Participants will get the chance to walk and talk with Dr. Claiborne.

The American Heart Association says one of the best ways to start walking is to walk with a group. Walking is a low-cost, easy way to get some great exercise. It doesn’t require special clothes, equipment or membership to a gym or special club.

“Getting out in the sunshine and walking is not only great for your overall physical wellness, but it can also greatly benefit your mental health as well,” Dr. Claiborne says. “I’m looking forward to getting outdoors, talking and exercising with my patients and Rome residents.”

The walk lasts approximately 30 to 45 minutes and is roughly two miles.

The weather in May can be unpredictable. Please check Harbin Clinic’s web site, Facebook and Twitter pages for updates about the event in case of bad weather. For more information, visit www.harbinclinic.com.
