Colleges Team Up to Produce Arkansas Health Issues Programs

April 11, 2016

JONESBORO — Arkansas State University’s College of Media and Communication and the College of Nursing and Health Professions have joined forces to produce a series of programs titled "Your State of Health" that focus on health issues important to the state of Arkansas.

The first program, “Good Nutrition,” will air on ASU-TV, Suddenlink Channel 18, Wednesday, April 13, at 5 p.m. and will continue throughout the summer.

The program series is the brainchild of Dr. Susan Hanrahan, dean of the College of Nursing and Health Professions, and Dr. Michael Bowman, assistant professor of Creative Media Production. They visited about the possibility of a student production of the program series following Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson’s announcement of a statewide plan to improve health of all Arkansans, Oct. 14, 2015. The programs align with initiatives by Gov. Hutchinson to improve Arkansans’ health. In fact, the broadcast “Good Nutrition” includes a recorded message from Hutchinson at the beginning.
