For more than a decade, Family Health Matters on WGVU’s Health Care Theme Nights has offered an in-depth examination of health issues affecting people in West Michigan. Programs deal with such topics as cancer, mental illness, stroke and eating disorders, often with stories told through the eyes of people who suffer from the ailment being discussed. Each theme night features programs on the topic along with a live, in-studio panel discussion with local experts and professionals. Viewers can call in to ask questions or to share their own outlooks and stories on the air.
