Wednesday, August 28, 2019

Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center and its partners at St. Lawrence County Public Health hosted a Walk with a Doc on Saturday, August 10, 2019, at the Abbie Piquet Trail on the Fort de la Presentacion grounds in Ogdensburg. Dr. Dhruv Modi and Dr. Pakkam Rajasekaran, both psychiatrists at Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center, lead the Walk with a brief talk about mental health stigma and how participants can all do their part to eliminate mental health stigma. The conversation continued as participants and providers walked the trail. Walkers were encouraged to sign an anti-stigma pledge as well. Drs. Modi and Rajasekaran were joined by other North Country medical providers and students, members of the Fort de la Presentacion Board of Directors, members of the community, and their family and friends. They are all shown in the photo. For more information about upcoming Walk with a Doc events, visit Your tomorrow is worth defending.
