The renovation of the Kaiser Permanente Center for Total Health (@KPTotalHealth) was completed in time to host the Vice Admiral (VADM) Vivek H. Murthy, M.D., M.B.A., the 19th Surgeon General of the United States (@Surgeon_General) and his Call to Action to Promote Walking and Walkable Communities (#StepItUp).
Of course we immediately followed his advice
The science on this is clear. It tells us an avg of 22 min of walking a day can significantly reduce our risk for chronic disease. #StepItUp
And went on a 22 minute walk of our own, through the historic NoMA neighborhood, in Washington, DC.
Photos from the convening of the Every Body Walk collaborative, 2013, remembering Deb Hubsmith
And, through the magic of social media, here are photos from a humble beginning, in 2013, also at the Center for Total Health
I remember with the first convening in 2013 that I pressed to share the photos in social media as quickly as possible, in large part because of what I saw – the energy leaping out of the images of Deb Hubsmith, who’s no longer with us.
Congratulations to all who applied their passion to making the world a friendlier and healthier place to all humans, and thanks for sharing the experience with us, which I am happy to share back to the world.
