Kettering Walkers host Rural Week Medical Students

Medical Students join local walkers

Yesterday Kettering Walkers played host to three second-year medical students from the University of Tasmania.

As part of the their curriculum students participate in a Rural Community Week.

This includes time spent at the Snug Medical Cnetre, time on Bruny Island and a walk with the local Heart Foundation Walking Group.

Kettering Walkers are delighted to be part of this UTAS placement initiative and hope that the young doctors-to-be-will go on to promote the idea that walking at any age and ability is an integral and important part of well-being.

Kettering Walkers have now been active for five years and our recent celebratory
walks include:

  • The Nierinna Creek Track ending up with morning tea at the Channel Museum, Margate
  • Old Station Road where we took the bus from Oyster Cove to Snug and then
    walked the 7km return
  • Snug River with morning tea and birthday cake afterwards.

With all those rewards on offer no wonder the walkers always look happy. Some photos (click to enlarge):
