GREENEVILLE, TN – “Easy Ways To Exercise” will be the topic of a lecture Thursday, June 3, by Dr. Daniel Lewis.
Dr. Lewis, a board-certified family medicine physician who specializes in sports medicine with Takoma Medical Associates, will speak at 10 a.m. at the Roby Fitzgerald Adult Center, 203 N. College St. The event is free and open to the public.
“There are many alternatives to exercising in a gym – if you just look for them,” Dr. Lewis said. “One way is when you go shopping. Try to find a parking spot farthest away from the store. Another easy way is to take the stairs instead of the elevator.”
Dr. Lewis also will demonstrate some easy stretches that can be done at home or work.
Dr. Lewis recently received his certificate of added qualification in sports medicine. He completed a primary-care sports medicine fellowship at Wake Forest University.
Dr. Lewis received his undergraduate degree in biology and history from East Tennessee State University and received his medical degree from the university’s James H. Quillen School of Medicine with a curriculum focus on rural health.
Dr. Lewis completed a family medicine residency at Self Regional Healthcare in Greenwood, S.C., where he was recognized as South Carolina Academy of Family Physicians Outstanding Resident of the Year in 2007. He also received the prestigious AAFP/Bristol-Myers Squibb Award for Excellence In Graduate Medical Education as a second-year resident physician -- this award is only given to 20 resident physicians across the United States per year.
