Piedmont Healthcare’s initiative, “Walk with a Doc,” is now being offered in Conyers. Walk with a Doc helps the community get active and have better access to physicians. The monthly walks will be held at Wheeler Park, 1350 Parker Road, Conyers. All members of the community are invited to attend and have one-on-one time with a Piedmont physician.
Tamica White, M.D., will host the next walk on Tuesday, May 14. Dr. White is a general surgeon with Piedmont Physicians Surgical Specialists Conyers and has over 10 years of experience providing a wide range of surgical services. She has advanced training in oncoplastic breast reconstruction, minimally invasive surgery and the surgical treatment of non-healing wounds.
White earned a medical degree from Rutgers-New Jersey Medical School and completed a general surgery residency at Georgetown University Hospital. She then went on to complete a fellowship in thoracic surgical oncology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.
Walkers are encouraged to gather at the park by 8:45 a.m. as the walk begins promptly at 9 a.m. The physician hosting the walk will take a few minutes at the beginning of each walk to talk about his or her specialty before leading the group around the Parker Road complex.
The walks will be held on the second Tuesday of each month through September. Although the event is free, registration is required by calling 877-527-3712 or visiting piedmont.org/docwalk. Registration will also be available on site starting at 8:30 a.m.
