On Fri., Feb. 8, we’re partnering with Dr. Ted Eytan, a full-time promoter of active transportation within Kaiser Permanente’s Center for Total Health, to lead a public meeting on how to make bicycling a part of your everyday life, and how decisions like these lead to a healthier life. We’ll begin at the Kaiser Permanente Center for Total Health and head to a local bikeshare station, where we’ll discuss bicycling in D.C., incorporating biking into the lifestyle of a person and a healthy community, and the power of social groups to change the culture of health Why will this public meeting happen while we’re moving around? Walking meetings are an approach appearing on work calendars across the country as a simple way to incorporate healthy activities into an everyday routine. Dr. Eytan has affirmed this with research and suggestions on how to make exercise a feature in your own work environment. Dr. Eytan’s public meeting series, Walk With a Doc, seeks to raises awareness surrounding active transportation in the D.C. area. All the meetings are free and open to the public. In addition to Dr. Eytan, we’ll be walking and talking with members of Black Women Bike DC, who will talk about the group’s mission and work in the D.C. area.  D.C. bike ambassadors will also be present. So join us for a brisk walk and a little bike talk! Date: Fri., Feb. 8, 2013 Time: 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Location: Kaiser Permanente Center For Total Health, 700 2nd St. NE, Washington, D.C.
