Russians walk their way to a healthier future


Russians walk their way to a healthier future. At least that's the hope of Leo Antonovitch Bokeria, a cardiac surgeon, a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the leader of the Russian "Walks With a Doctor" movement. In the frames of an international concept  these 'walks' unite cardiologists and citizens of the United States, Canada, UK, Australia, India and Russia in their intention to stay healthy.


Last weekend there was the eighth Moscow Walk. Along with walking, the event involves medical service. Professionals who can analyze blood pressure, blood sugar levels  provide a consultation on the spot. Leo Bokeria is also happy to answer any questions before and after the walk.
