On the flip side, being active makes you healthier, stronger, and has a positive impact on all sorts of pathologies, including chronic diseases, mental health challenges, etc.

Dr. Bob Sallis was here to spread the word on the health benefits of walking and the need for physicians everywhere to think of exercise as a medicine they should be prescribing to every patient they see.
