Walking in Edmond, Oklahoma
I started a walking group in Edmond, Oklahoma. So far, only one person has joined me and that's ok. However, I look forward to more people joining our walking excursions. Starting a group helped me be accountable to myself to walk every day. I am a Registered Nurse and I care for individuals at the bedside. My focus is to provide my patients' which the tier of care that is is needed: primary, secondary and tertiary. Outside of the hospital, I want to exercise a public health leadership role and promote health in my community. I tell my patients when lying in their hospital bed "you can get healthier in five minutes, you just need to get out of bed and walk!" I can tell my community:" come walk with me on the beautiful paved walking trails in Edmond, Oklahoma and let us promote health in ourselves and each other!"
