The Delaware Valley Health Council just finished a terrific webinar this afternoon for hospital personnel to learn more about how they can promote the Circuit to their patients. "Delivering health care instead of disease care." The webinar featured Tom Sexton from Rails to Trails, Elissa Garafolo from the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor and Barrett Dunigan of Friends of Cynwyd Trail.
The D&L folks are partnering with St. Luke's Hospital system to put on a spring challenge "Calling All Couch Potatoes" as part of their "Get Your Tail on the Trail" progam.
The Friends of the Cynwyd Trail partnered with Lankenau Medical Center to host "Trail Tuesdays" last fall. Lankenau Hospital staff led workshops on the trail about what shoes to wear, foods to eat and how trails can make you healthy.
The Circuit Coalition invites other hospitals to become engaged with trails that are proximate to their location. Here is a map of hospitals near Circuit trails. If you are a hospital wanting to connect with a trail group, please contact Tom Sexton [email protected] or Sarah Clark Stuart [email protected]
