By   /   September 21, 2011  /   Comments

The 2011 5k & 1 Mile event will be held on October 22 and is presented by the Dougherty County Medical Society. It will be held as a way for physicians to lead by example and share with their patients the importance of incorporating physical activity and exercise into their daily routines.
