The Hospital of Central Connecticut’s next Walk with a Doc will be held 9 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 10 at Walnut Hill Park, New Britain. It will include a 30-minute walk, health tips from an orthopedic surgeon, and during this holiday season, a food drive for the New Britain Food and Resource Center.

Just before leading the walk, Robert Waskowitz, M.D., an orthopedic surgeon, will discuss shoulder pain causes and treatment. Sign-in will begin at 8:30 a.m. behind the pavilion. New participants will receive a hat, pedometer and fanny pack; each walker will receive a water bottle.

For the food drive, non-perishable items may be dropped off during sign-in.

The hospital is the first in New England to join Just Walk, a Walk with a Doc program that hosts free community walks at area parks that are led by a doctor and stress the benefits of exercise while providing health tips. Sponsors are Anthem and Pepsi Beverages Company.

To register, or for more information, including possible event cancellation on walk day in case of inclement weather, please visit or call 1-877-914-WALK. On walk day, registrants need to present a completed waiver form, available online with registration or on walk day. After the December event, walks will resume next April.
