Calling all Walkers!
NEOMED has chosen to be a major sponsor of the area's American Heart Association Heart Walk on Saturday, Aug. 26 at the University of Akron Stile Athletics Field House. The walk includes Portage County and the Greater Akron Area. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and the walk begins at 10 a.m.
Our goal is to have four or five teams with a strong presence in each team participate in the walk this year. William Chilian, Ph.D., professor and chair of integrative medical sciences will showcase some of the research that he and his team have been working on.
If you are interested in being a team captain or signing up to participate as a walker, you can sign up online. Additional fundraising on behalf of your team or as an individual is welcome, but not required in order to participate. There are also 10 wellness points available for participating in a community race or walk. Please contact Janet Coon at firstname.lastname@example.org or 330.325. 6264 for more information.
Fun Fact: During the last two years, NEOMED has been granted over $400,000 from the local chapter of the American Heart Association. Half of the money raised, which the American Heart Association granted to the local market, came directly to NEOMED in awards!
