Networks often air content that bombard viewers with unhealthy messages and stereotypes, but watching TV might actually be good for your health. Especially if you’re watching the Health Channel, the nation’s only ‘round-the-clock channel for people who want the latest in health and medical news. Launched in August, this partnership between South Florida PBS (WXEL and WPBT) and Baptist Health promotes interactivity by allowing viewers to call in or email questions directly to doctors or experts who respond during the four hours of live programming. The channel also offers an array of informative content regarding cardiovascular health, maternity care, healthy living, and much more. South Florida PBS Vice President Bill Scott told the Palm Beach Post that the channel covers “everything from acne to Zika - in other words, A to Z.”
