Here’s to Your Health is a local public access TV show on healthy living. The brainchild of VeggiePatti, the show is intended to promote healthy living by showcasing events, people, and practitioners that present both mainstream and alternative views of health. The hope is that viewers will walk away with at list one tip from every show that they can incorporate into their lives to improve their health, or at least make them think about things in a different way.
The show is filmed through Wyandotte Cable. VeggiePatti, the host and producer, as well as the entire crew are volunteers for the show. Crew members include Debbie Berens, Amber Bittner, Pat Clemens, Elena Maria, Teresa McClendon, Daniel Radakovic, Roy Radakovich, and Sophie Radakovich, with other volunteers helping out at various times throughout the first year.
The show airs on Wyandotte Cable Channel 15, Grosse Ile’s public access channel, Comcast Channel 20 in Allen Park, Brownstown, Berlin Twp, Ecorse, Flat Rock, Garden City, Gibraltar, Grosse Ile, Inkster, Lincoln Park, Melvindale, Riverview, River Rouge, Rockwood, Southgate, South Rockwood, Taylor, Trenton, and Woodhaven, and Comcast Channel 18 in Dearborn, Canton, Northville, and Plymouth. Check your local listings for air dates and times.
