Last year, as a fairly new blogger, I was excited to be asked to attend events. I still am although I cannot attend nearly as many events this year due to lack of time....
Dr. Oz is Moving to WSBTV
On September 8, 2014, Dr. Oz is moving to Channel 2 WSB-TV at 3PM. In addition, Channel 2 WSB-TV, Piedmont Hospital, Alere, Covidien, and Linx are sponsoring the “USANA Presents: Bringing Healthy Back with Dr. Oz” health expo. Dr. Oz will be in attendance this Saturday, September 13th from 9a-5pm at the Downtown Hilton.
The Health Expo is free to attend, but registration is encouraged for attendance (and required for a seat at the “90 Minutes to a Healthier You” show run-through or to get a health check).
The “90s Minutes to a Healthier You” shows will be held this Saturday from 11a-12:45p & 2p-3:45. The show will contain an all-star roster of experts (including Dr. Oz) who will share tips and advice on health, fitness and nutrition.
WSB-TV Anchors (Jovita Moore, Justin Farmer, Karen Minton, Katie Walls, Glenn Burns, Linda Stouffer) will be at the Health Expo and your readers can meet them. Jovita and Justin will also be MC’ing the “90 Minutes to a Healthier You” show.
90 MINUTES TO A HEALTHIER YOU
In this packed session, attendees will hear from:
