No matter where you are in your health journey, could you start with a short walk, yoga, or ride your bike? The goal is to start, and if you are already on top of your game; here is a month to show off!
Let’s show our city, state and nation just how many miles the St. David’s HealthCare community can do together this April, and take #1 on the Top Organizations Leaderboard. To make it more inviting, we will be competing by facility to inspire and enjoy one another, and get moving together!
