People who want to walk for exercise are invited to join a program that offers a chance to get their steps in while talking with physicians.

West Virginia University Medicine, Healthy Berkeley and the Martinsburg Farmers Market are sponsoring the program called Walk with a Doc. The next walk is set for May 18, with participants meeting at 4:30 p.m. in the square in downtown Martinsburg.

WVU Medicine said in a news release that the American Heart Association reports that walking has the lowest dropout rate of any physical activity and is safe with a doctor's approval.

Walk with a Doc will be held on the third Friday of each month throughout the summer.
