The indoor walk and talk will take place
January 31 at 8 AM in the Staten Island Mall
"Walk With A Doctor" will take place this Saturday, January 31, 2015 from 8am-10am at the Staten Island Mall (enter between Red Robin and Applebee's in the JCPenney wing). The event is hosted by Borough President James Oddo and the Richmond County Medical Society.
January is Cervical Health Awareness Month, so the topic of the event will be women's health issues. At the event, James Reilly, M.D., an OB/GYN, and Simon Kokkinakis, M.D., FACOG, will speak about the topic and answer questions from participants. The lecture will be followed by a walk through the mall and a 10 minute interactive discussion.
"Getting out and walking is the easiest thing you can do to get your body moving," said Ginny Mantello, M.D., Director of Health and Wellness at Borough Hall. "And this program is two-fold because not only are you walking, but you are learning valuable information about gynecologic health firsthand from experts in the field right here on the Island."
