While there are many health and wellness programs on TV, Hope Channel's latest live show, Go Healthy... For Good, offers a broad spectrum of cutting-edge science, current events, diet, exercise, mental and emotional health and real-time advice for viewers who contact the programs.
"We want to capture the attention of the average TV viewer with up-to-the- moment health news, discuss the practical value of the latest research, and share with viewers how to integrate it all into their lives," said show host Dr. Nerida McKibben, a gynecologist and obstetrician. "From prenatal to end-of-life care, God's principles are scientifically proven to add years to your life, and life to your years. Go Healthy ... For Good makes the biblical perspective on good health more practical and accessible to viewers of every background."
Guests will include medical staff from some of America's leading hospitals and teaching universities, including Albert Reece, MD, PhD, vice president for medical affairs for the University of Maryland School of Medicine; Ben Carson, Director of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins; medical experts from the Pan American Health Organization; and Drs. Allan R. Handysides, director of the General Conference Health Ministries Department, and Peter Landless, associate director.
Viewers can participate with the interactive show by phone, e-mail, text message, Facebook, Twitter or short video posts through services like YouTube.
