November edition of Southcoast's "Take a Walk with a Southcoast Doc" to take place in Dartmouth
Cornell Farm walk to be led by Ronald Bogusky, MD, Director of Inpatient Diabetes Care
FAIRHAVEN, Mass - The November edition of Southcoast® Health System's "Take a Walk with a Southcoast Doc" is in celebration of National Diabetes Month, and will take place on Saturday, November 30, at 9:30 a.m., at Cornell Farm, located on Smith Neck Road in Dartmouth.
The community walk will be led by nephrologist, Ronald Bogusky, MD, Director of Inpatient Diabetes Care for Southcoast Hospitals. Dr. Bogusky has cared for diabetes patients on the South Coast for a number of years in both private practice and with Southcoast Health System.
The scenic walking trail at Cornell Farm features paths lined by pine and oak, and emerges at a salt marsh at the head of the Little River. Those attending the walk will get a firsthand look at the now-harvested gardens and greenhouse. Cornell Farm has a long history as a productive farm and was passed down by the Cornell family through five generations. Thanks to the efforts of the family, the Trustees, and Dartmouth Natural Resources Trust, Cornell Farm remains an active agricultural, ecological, recreational, and educational asset to the community.
All ages and levels of walking ability are welcome. Participants will receive a free pedometer and "Better Health Kits" that include healthy holiday recipes, and information on nutrition and exercise. Registration is encouraged. To register, call the Southcoast Wellness Line at 800-497-1727.
Southcoast physicians want to help guide you on the path to good health with a walking program that is designed to get people up, moving and enjoying some beautiful walks throughout the South Coast region. The "Take a Walk with a Southcoast Doc" program includes monthly walks with Southcoast Physicians Group doctors throughout the South Coast region.
