WABI Burien wants everyone to know that they’re kicking off the new year with a special ‘Walk-n-Talk-with-a-Doc’ on Sunday, Jan. 6, starting at 2 p.m.

Dr. Michael Schlitt, Neurosurgeon and Chief of Surgery at Highline Medical Center, will speak to the group beforehand about the health benefits of walking.

Each walker present will receive a free pedometer and a copy of Dr. Schlitt’s walking program.

Dr. Schlitt will then join the walk so the conversation can continue along the walking route.

Some Intentions for Burien’s Walk-n-Talk:
  • “Encourage active living to support physical and mental health.” (Part of Burien’s new “Vision”.)
  • Initiate conversation between friends and neighbors, new and old.
  • Create our own little “volksmarch“, in the European tradition.
