Good for You Part Deux

By Annmarie Dean

WNED AM 970 News and BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York are once again partnering up to present Good for You, a live radio series and health expo dedicated to healthy living. The second program, entitled The Best Third of Your Life will air on Thursday, Nov. 3 at 1 p.m. on WNED AM 970 as part of a special addition to Forum.


The event will begin with the expo and healthy buffet lunch at 11:30 a.m., followed by the live broadcast from our studios. The event is free but seating is limited so be sure to register online to reserve your seat.

During the health expo, you’ll be able to learn all about senior health. There will be a display on sodium, nurses who will be discussing fall prevention, medicinal safety, and taking blood pressure. Learn about yoga for seniors and the NuVal program (a nutritional scoring system.) You’ll also be able to grab a copy of their Healthy Changes Everything CD featuring Lance Diamond and Nikki Hicks.

The hour-long broadcast will be led by our own Jim Ranney and will include three panelists: Dr. Kenneth Garbarino, geriatrician and medical director of Geriatric Ambulatory Program at DeGraff Memorial Hospital; Dr. Riffat Sadiq, geriatrician and president of Western New York Medical, PC; and Judy Casassa, supervisor of program development and evaluation for the Erie County Senior Services Department.

Audience members will be able to ask questions and those listening at home or at work will be able to submit questions via email.

Will you be in attendance for the event? Do you have any questions for the panel? Feel free to comment below.
