Do you wish you could get your patients and their families to exercise more? Is there a pediatric health topic you want to educate the public about? In both Reno and Las Vegas, the Nevada AAP leads free, family-friendly walks to bring our community together in a safe environment to experience health education and inspiration. Please help us market these events to your patients or, better yet, join us yourself and talk with Nevada AAP leaders at the event about leading a future Walk with a Doc yourself!
