New Bedford Wellness Initiative

Hawthorn Cardiologist Michael Rocha, MD, has decided to do something about the health of the New Bedford area. Dr. Rocha now leads a monthly Wellness Walk at Buttonwood Park the first Saturday of every month at 10:00 am. The group meets at the entrance to the zoo. Walk around the park at a pace comfortable for you. Do the whole 2-mile walk or whatever you can. The idea is to “Get Moving; Get Healthy.” The New Bedford Wellness Initiative was formed to raise health awareness and encourage physical activity. Check out their Facebook page for information about other upcoming activities.
