Walk MS Heros in Healthcare

Walk MS Heros in Healthcare is an opportunity for healthcare professionals and patients to team up at Walk MS and take steps together toward not only a world free of MS, but a healthier lifestyle.
Why?

Because teaming up gives us an opportunity to make a bigger impact. You and your patients can enjoy a refreshing approach toyour healthcare relationship outside of the traditional medical setting; and have an opportunity to connect on a new and exciting level. We know the benefits of walking include lowering cholesterol and reducing blood pressure. This program can help educate and empower your patients to a healthier lifestyle all while moving us toward a world free of MS.

 
How does the program work?
