Great Lakes FM features a Good Health Program every Wednesday from 11.15 to 11.45 am.
The aim of the program is to provide listeners with practical advice on all aspects of healthy living and enable them to make sound choices to maintain and improve their health. The emphasis is on the steps people can take to stay fit and healthy.
Once a fortnight a panel of experts (doctors, dietitians, physiotherapists, podiatrists, chiropractors, etc…) provide information and advice on a range of health topics. Listeners can phone in with questions. The program is repeated the following Wednesday at 5.15 am and again at 11.15 am.
Broadly, each program is of half-hour duration and focuses on one of three areas of concern – the first, general advice on healthy eating, the second on appropriate activity/exercise for all age groups, and the final area addressing differing aspects of the challenge of living with chronic conditions – such as mobility concerns, ageing and related conditions, such as heart disease, Diabetes, etc.
John Healy, who presents the Good Health program, and interviews the panel each week, says that ” the Good Health Program meets a real need in the community, and provides an extremely effective platform to promote related health services.” So if you have a health or health related service contact Great Lakes FM to see how you can be part of this beneficial program.
