ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Phoebe Putney employees spent some time walking at work Thursday afternoon.

The goal of the first Phoebe Employee Heart Walk is to encourage workers to exercise at least 30 minutes a day.

Since health officials are stressing heart health to South Georgians, they thought it was fitting for them to be proactive.

"We believe as healthcare workers it's important for us not only to take care of ourselves, but also to set a good example for other members of the community. So part of what we were doing here today was reminding ourselves the importance of getting out and getting some exercise," said Joel Wernick President and CEO of Phoebe Putney Health System.

The walk was a prelude to the American Heart Association Heart Walk on March 8th at Meredyth Place.
