Walk with a Doc Cancelled

Boulder Community Health’s highest priority is to ensure we do everything within our control to maintain the safety of our patients, staff and the overall community. This requires us to take every opportunity to contain, control and reduce the impact of the COVID-19 virus. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), limiting public gatherings is a very effective tool for slowing the spread of COVID-19. We are following that CDC recommendation and cancelling all non-essential public gatherings intended for community members. This is effective immediately and includes (list specific activity here).

We recognize that activities like community education programs and support groups are highly valued by community members and the BCH staff who provide those services. Accordingly, we have started a taskforce that is working to identify alternative ways of providing such activities. We expect to begin using such new approaches in the near future.

Thank you for supporting this effort to safeguard our community. I also encourage you to visit the homepage of our website, www.bch.org, for regular updates about COVID-19.

Join Boulder Community Health and the City of Boulder Parks and Recreation Department to Walk with a Doc and take steps toward better health.

This is a free community program to see how easy it is to get healthy and prevent disease.

With with a Doc is a great way to get active, learn about a health topic and chat with a physician, and enjoy good conversation. Walk at your own pace and distance.
