MDI Hospital's Wellness Program is offering Wellness Walks Mondays and Wednesdays.

During August, the program is meeting at 8 a.m. instead of the usual time of 8:30 a.m. due to the higher traffic on the trails. The goal is to offer a safe and enjoyable activity for everyone.  All walkers who are not currently exercising should consult with their health care provider before starting any exercise program.

To sign up or for more information reach out to Mary Parham, the Community Health Educator at 801-5034 or email her at
