Dr. Joshua Kilpatrick spends most of his days practicing family and sports medicine at Baylor Scott and White. But last weekend, instead of being at home enjoying the weekend, he changed into workout shorts and running shoes to go on a walk with local residents at Lions Club Park in Killeen.

It is all part of a new “Walk with a Doc” program, and Baylor Scott and White organized the event in partnership with the Killeen Independent School District, Texas Medical Association and H-E-B. The event is one of many across the country aimed at getting physicians out into the community. Since diet and exercise are often seen as the foundation of good health, Walk with a Doc provides a chance to practice what doctors preach alongside people who might be walking to de-stress or are looking to alleviate other ailments.
