TV30 airs live medical show

Viewers can call in to talk with health experts for free

by Emily Atwood

The phrases "medical experts" and "free of charge" are rarely used together these days, at least without a catch. But that's all about to change for viewers of TV30. Starting Wed., Sept. 27 from 7 to 8 p.m., callers will have the opportunity to receive answers to health-related questions from a panel of medical experts for free on TV30's new show "Healthline."

Heart health is the premise of the live program, with Dr. Robert Litman as the host. The expert panel features Dr. Murali Dharan, a cardiac surgeon; Dr. Pramodh Sidh, a cardiologist; and Dr. Bela Kenessey, a family medicine specialist.

Wednesday's "Healthline" is a pilot episode and Glenn Davis, executive director of TV30, said the continuation of the program is entirely dependent on audience response. Success is measured by phone calls during the live show and also during re-broadcasts over the next couple weeks.

To directly talk with one of these physicians during Wednesday's live broadcast, call (925) 462-3030.

A message for Dr Kenessey. You should get rid of the mustache Bela! I think you'd look younger without it. Just my 5 cents worth. PS: Great hosting by the way, not bad for an amature.
