Bellin Health, Green Bay, 2020 Community Benefit

Bellin Cardiologist Walks his Talk with "Lambeau Lap"

Dr. Rahul Verma of Bellin Health Cardiology Associates is walking his talk with the Lambeau Lap, the free community walking program he started to encourage physical activity.
You’ve heard of the “Lambeau Leap.” But do you know about the “Lambeau Lap”?
The Lambeau Lap is the creation of Dr. Rahul Verma of Bellin Health Cardiology Associates. It started in 2019 with Dr. Verma’s concept to host a weekly walk in the Titletown District, adjacent to Lambeau Field. The goal? Help community members improve heart health by getting into a walking routine, thereby addressing a key community health needs assessment priority — physical activity, obesity and nutrition.
“As the official health care provider of the Green Bay Packers, we have a unique relationship with the team,” Verma said. “We’re very much aligned on the importance of good health.”
Each Wednesday morning, participants gather at Bellin Health Titletown Sports Medicine and Orthopedics for a 1.4-mile trek in the shadows of historic Lambeau Field — with Dr. Verma leading the way. After a pandemic-induced hiatus, the event returned this summer with new masking and distancing precautions in place. 
All are welcome to participate in the free event. While the total distance is 1.4 miles, Dr. Verma tells participants to do whatever portion of that distance is comfortable for them.
As a cardiologist, Dr. Verma knows the importance of exercise. 
“Walking is one of the single best things you can do to improve your health,” he said. “All you really need is a pair of shoes and a little motivation. The Lambeau Lap group provides that impetus in a fun, easygoing setting that motivates participants to make movement a part of their daily lives.”
