Seven Years For Walk n' Talk

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

Temperatures might be in the upper 80s Tuesday, but dozens of people still turned up for a healthy afternoon with St. Vincent Healthcare.

For seven years, the hospital has hosted the Walk n' Talk event. The event began at the downtown Billings YMCA, and ended at Pioneer Park. Doctors from the hospital were there to walk with the participants, and offered some health tips along the way.

"We've had lots of doctors from St. V's come talk about your feet, and talk about your brain, and MS, and exercise. Preventing diabetes and picking up diabetes. So, a lot of different topics," said Dr. Cheryl Cook.

In addition to tips on healthy living, the group also shared some healthy recipes.

The free walk takes place every Tuesday.
