10 Health TV - Busy as Ever!

In January 2017, 10 Health TV will celebrate its 5th anniversary with over 575 videos produced, covering a wide variety of health and wellness topics relevant to the Lincoln community.

In just the last year, the monthly Shape of the City program highlighted numerous activities and organizations, including: the local WIC program, LiveWell Challenge, Streets Alive, Child Advocacy Center, and the Community Learning Centers, as well as education on youth dental health, new American Dietary Guidelines, breastfeeding in the workplace, and healthy summer activities for the whole family.

For the on-the-move parents, Michelle Welch from LPS Wellness returned with more fun and simple tips for healthy eating, from greening up your snacks to keeping pre-teens and teenagers healthy and safe when they’re “Home Alone”.

The Get Up and Go series took viewers rock climbing, footgolfing, pickle balling, cross-country skiing, canoeing, and bat watching, among other things.  While local tennis professional, Sig Garnett, made tennis a whole lot easier and inexpensive, with simple tips for anyone to use with the backboards available at several parks across Lincoln.
