For nearly 4 years, the Nevada Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics has led in-person Walk with a Doc events for the Las Vegas community on the second Sunday of each month. Starting in April 2020, we temporarily switched to virtual events to support social distancing. For the May 2020 walk Dr. Terence McAllister, a staff pediatrician at Desert Valley Pediatrics in Las Vegas, gave a brief, kid-friendly health talk about preventative care during the pandemic and then took questions live.
You can watch the replay of the May virtual walk by clicking on the video link on the right. To join us for our June walk, subscribe to our email list below.
Sign up to hear from us about upcoming monthly walks for the Las Vegas community. We only email our subscribers twice a month.
Walk with a Doc (WWAD) was started in Columbus, Ohio in April of 2005 by Dr. David Sabgir and has now expanded throughout the world. With an aim to make hope and health accessible to all, WWAD doctor-led walking groups are a safe, fun, and FREE place to get some steps, learn about health, and meet new friends.

For the Las Vegas/Henderson community, the Nevada AAP leads free, kid-friendly Walk with a Doc events the second Sunday of every month. We meet October - May at Springs Preserve in Las Vegas, but we move June - September to Mount Charleston to avoid the heat in the Las Vegas Valley. Scroll down for current event information as well as to read past post-walk informational newsletters. Starting in April 2020 and until further notice, our monthly Walk with a Doc events will be held virtually on Facebook Live.
