Dr. Patel has recently participated in the Smith County Medical Society (SCMS) initiative “Walk with a Doc”. This is a national program encouraging physician interaction and encouragement in patient exercise and education. Dr. Patel spoke on the topic of COPD, updating attendees with recent information about COPD and treatment protocols. The program continues on a monthly basis and will be moving back to Rose Rudman Park for the spring and summer months. PSOT has supported SCMS through individual membership and leadership for the past 30 years and encourages regular exercise for all patients that are able.
