Joseph Barry, MD, visits his local farmer’s market at least twice every month. He does so for reasons beyond his own preference for healthy eating. That’s where he greets many of his patients.
Barry, a Camillus, NY family physician, greets his patients at the local farmer’s market because he wants to keep them healthy by helping them figure out how to keep fresh produce from getting boring. To that end, he shares recipes and healthful tips, and also leads healthy walks with his patients along the canal in town.
For Barry, that’s a way of life—and he hopes to instill it in his patients.
