Austin Half Marathon 2023: Dr. Shaw and Alex Put Their Best Feet Forward

February 21, 2023

Join us in congratulating Austin urologist Dr. Koushik Shaw and our nurse practitioner Alex Hughes on completing the 2023 Austin Half Marathon this past Sunday, February 19.

Given our emphasis on preventative care and a healthy lifestyle, it’s no surprise they have taken on such a challenge. Dr. Shaw and Alex are setting an example by completing the 13.1 miles race. By crossing the finish line, they have shown that they practice the health practices we preach. Members of the team were there to cheer them on in our very limited edition “urine first place with our care” shirts.

At the Austin Urology Institute, we believe prevention is the best medicine. Regular exercise, such as running, has been shown to have numerous health benefits, including reducing the risk of chronic diseases, improving mental health, and increasing longevity. By participating in the Austin Half Marathon, Dr. Shaw and Alex not only challenged themselves personally, but also demonstrated the importance of incorporating physical activity into a healthy lifestyle.
