CONNECT WITH BRITISH COLUMBIA PHYSICIANS

Every year, the Physiotherapy Association of British Columbia partners with Doctors of BC for Walk with your Doc. This event is a great opportunity to connect with physicians and their patients across the province to walk and talk about the benefits of physiotherapy and being physically active.  

Participating doctors invite all BC physiotherapists to walk side-by-side with them at any of the Walk with your Doc events province-wide, May 4-12, 2019. Promote your profession and register below to be partnered with a doctor in your community!

Warm-up leaders are physios who will lead walk participants through a short (5 min) stretch before the walk. This is a great opportunity to network with doctors and their patients. 

If you are interested in leading any of these walks, please register online, indicating which walk you are interested in. We will then pair you with the doctor, and send you all the info! PABC members leading walks will receive a Physio Walk Leader t-shirt to wear at the event, as well as promotional materials to hand out to participants. We look forward to a great turnout from our association members!
