Beaumont Hospital, Farmington Hills welcomes all to attend its "Walk with a Doc" healthy living program on Thursday, May 18, from noon to 1 p.m. This free community event is led by a physician who emphasizes exercise and provides health tips.
Jacklyn McParlane, D.O., an emergency medicine physician, will speak about how diet and lifestyle choices contribute to your heart health.

She is a strong proponent of making heart healthy food and lifestyle choices.
