In Praise of Walking: A New Scientific Exploration Webinar

June 3, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT

America Walks invites you to an intimate conversation with author Shane O’Mara on his new book, “In Praise of Walking: A New Scientific Exploration.” As a neuroscientist and walking advocate, O’Mara takes us on an evolutionary journey through how we started walking, the magical mechanics of it, and how we find our way around the world. It also explores walking in relation to repairing our mental and social health, sparking creativity, and how walking in concert can be coupled with critical policy change.
