Kaiser Permanente Woodland Hills celebrated the opening of its new Thrive walking path last month. Located on the campus of Kaiser Permanente Woodland Hills, the path is nearly a mile long and is open to the public (as seen in the Thrive Path Map). The course takes about 20 minutes to complete and is accessible to individuals with disabilities.
“We built this Thrive path because we know that physical activity helps keep you healthy and strong,” said Sean Hashmi, MD, an internal medicine and nephrology specialist at Kaiser Permanente Woodland Hills.
“Thirty minutes a day, five days a week of moderate exercise, such as walking, can help reduce your risk of serious illness and improve your mood.” At Kaiser Permanente, we know that walkable environments are vital to encouraging people to walk more,” said Richard Trogman, FACHE, chief operating officer of Kaiser Permanente Woodland Hills. “By opening our Thrive path to the public, we hope to improve the health of the communities where we live, work and play.”
