BP Oddo and the Richmond County Medical Society will host the next event in the “Walk With A Doctor” series on Wednesday, August 26th, at 6 p.m. at Historic Richmond Town. The walk, which was rescheduled due to rain, will take place prior to the Sunset Summer Concert, which begins at 7 p.m. in the same location.
Prior to the walk, Dr. Radha Syed, MD, FACOG, will give a talk about bone health, vitamin D deficiency, and screening recommendations for osteoporosis. Dr. Syed is a board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist at Staten Island University Hospital.
The walk will be hosted by a guide from Historic Richmond Town who will educate participants on the property and Staten Island history.
“Walking is the easiest thing you can do to get your body moving and get on the path to good health,” said Ginny Mantello, M.D., Director of Health and Wellness at Borough Hall. “Our program is unique because while you’re getting exercise, you are also learning about osteoporosis from a board certified obstetrician.”
Each session in the series takes place at a different location on the Island.
