dc.descriptionWalk with a Future Doc (WWAFD) is a community outreach organization which seeks to improve the health literacy and well-being of individuals within the Columbus community and The Ohio State University. We provide medical students, physicians, and other health care professionals the unique opportunity to interact with community members in an informal setting. WWAFD organizes monthly walks that begin with a brief presentation on a relevant health topic and are followed by an hour-long walk. In the past year, WWAFD has become an established club at The Ohio State University. We have successfully hosted walks at Scioto Audubon Metro Park and Columbus Park of Roses. We have begun to build a relationship with organizations at Ohio State and established ourselves in the community surrounding the Columbus Park of Roses. We have been working closely with Walk With a Doc (WWAD) to create a framework for medical students across the country to use when piloting similar programs in their communities. This includes a list of FAQs, best practice guidelines, leadership position descriptions and responsibilities, and a new chapter formation framework for WWAD to use when communicating with new WWAFD chapters at other medical schools. Our intended audience at the 2018 Community Engagement Conference is twofold. Firstly, we are eager to expand our community engagement and outreach to include other partners. We believe that showcasing our work at this conference would enable WWAFD to make more robust connections within the community that could provide win-win opportunities for both us and the other groups in attendance for this year's theme of Preparing to Advance Health and Wellness. Furthermore, we feel that it is important for this work to gain exposure to the academic and educational community, so other medical schools across the country will be able to take advantage of our framework to pilot their own WWAFD chapters and advance health and wellness within their own communities. The presenters consist of a diverse group of second-year medical students at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. This group of professional students partnered with Walk with a Doc and founded a Walk with a Future Doc chapter at Ohio State to expand on the Community Health Education project at the Ohio State College of Medicine.en_US
