“We understand the importance of changing the lives of our employees and community,” said President & CEO Samuel H. Turner, Sr. “The Start! program is a great opportunity for us to get out and get moving to help raise awareness for America’s number one and three causes of death; heart disease and stroke.”
As a hospital leader and strong supporter of the Start! movement in Kansas City, SMMC is challenging its employees and the community to become more active through a variety of activities, including the Kansas City Heart Walk on May 22. SMMC is also home to the first and only Start! Walking Trail in Kansas City. The path includes a number of stations where walkers can stretch, find their balance and more.
