Health: Diabetes Walking Group
Verde Valley Medical Center Track
269 S. Candy Ln.
Verde Valley Medical Center’s (VVMC) Diabetes Education Department is encouraging those with diabetes to live a healthy, active lifestyle by sponsoring a walking group twice a week. This activity provides an opportunity for all individuals to exercise on a regular basis and meet others who also enjoy walking.
The walking group meets at the VVMC track, located near the southwest parking lot of VVMC, 269 S. Candy Lane. The walks are to encourage exercise and to help prepare those interested in participating in the Brian Mickelsen Memorial Run/Walk on Saturday, April 21.
VVMC’s walking group will start Saturday, Feb. 4, and will meet Wednesdays at 4 p.m. and Saturdays at 10 a.m. Exercise physiologist Joy Marimon, Cardiac Rehabilitation, will attend the walks to help with stretching and answer questions. Additionally, Martha Brown, registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator, and Mary May, R.N., certified diabetes educator will attend to answer questions about blood sugar control, exercise and diet.
