PBS has just announced that it will be airing a program about arthritis during its December, 2010, pledge show. Taped at WDSC-TV, a PBS member station in Daytona Beach, Florida, the show is to be titled “Functional Fitness” and stars fitness expert Suzanne Andrews. Subtitled “The Complete Guide to Arthritis Relief” it will offer the very latest treatments to decrease and even eliminate arthritis pain.
“Public Television viewers who follow Andrews’ health program sing its praises, from the grandmother who has found a new love of skiing with her grandchildren, to doctors who applaud the care and compassion Andrews has put into her work,” a PBS spokesperson stated.
Co-hosting the program with Suzanne Andrews is Dr. Mache Seibel who served on the Harvard Medical School faculty for almost two decades before assuming his current position as a Professor at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Seibel has won numerous awards for research, writing, music and patient education. Dr. Seibel is a founder of HealthRock®, reshaping health education with fun, easy to remember songs, and he wrote a song especially for the pledge show.
Public Television viewers are also offered a wealth of arthritis relief information from Nathan Wei, MD, who is a graduate of Swarthmore College and the Jefferson Medical College. He completed his residency at the University of Michigan Medical Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan and his fellowship in arthritis at the National Institute of Healthy in Bethedsa, Maryland. Dr. Wei is an acknowledged national expert in rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis and is the author of more than 500 publications. He highly recommends Andrews’ Functional Fitness program.
Andrews said specially produced arthritis pain management DVDs and Dr. Wei’s latest book will be offered as a ‘thank you’ to supporters of Public Television stations across the U.S. and Canada during their pledge drives. “Each segment is medically designed to nourish your joints, reduce arthritis pain and improve your joint function,” she stated.
