Dr. Dennis Godby, ND leads with his heart. He sees injustices in the world and literally takes concrete steps to end them. With his project Walk USA For Health Equity, Dennis has embarked on an ambitious challenge to walk the entire breadth of the US bringing attention to the disparities in our healthcare system. Luckily, with a quick smile and uninterrupted friendliness, Dennis is finding many along his route to share in his progress and to help support a change to bring equity for all.
As a skilled healthcare provider and educator, Dennis is a captivating spokesperson to bring diverse communities together to help solve this problem. I urge all of my colleagues, and anyone interested in health equity to check out Walk USA for Health Equity. You can become part of the discussion, take steps in your own local communities, and lend support to those making change.
I am personally honored to have been a part of Walk USA For Health Equity and to have had the chance to host Dennis while he was in NC.

His passion for healthy living is evident in all he has done throughout his life, including various runs and walks across the USA, spreading awareness about the importance of naturopathic medicine, and later for health equity.

His care for humanity is evident in all that he does, both personally and professionally, and it speaks to the depth of his character and the profound compassion that emanates from his heart.
