Make plans to participate in our second Healthy 4 Life expo


Save the date. Channel 4 wants you to join us in September for the second Healthy 4 Life expo at the Music City Center. Last year, more than 20,000 people attended the inaugural event, and this year's expo will be even bigger.

A day after we wrapped up last year's event, we got to work on this year's Healthy 4 Life expo. Mark these dates down: Sept. 20-21, 2014. That's your chance to join us once again.

The one and only Dr. Mehmet Oz, known for his TV program and best-selling books, helped us kick off our first-ever Healthy 4 Life expo last fall.

"I love the fact that Channel 4 is here. They've done this already, and they're going to do it every single year," Dr. Oz told the crowd at last year's Healthy 4 Life expo.

The 48-hour event is aimed at helping you make healthy choices. It included fitness activities, dancing, a rock wall and something for just about everyone.

There were live cooking demonstrations packed with information to make your meals healthier and the chance to try out some of the same medical technology doctors use like the DaVinci robot.

And there were health screenings along with your chance to talk with doctors and nurses about medical questions you may have, all free of charge.

"When you look for the house of health in Nashville, you go to Channel 4 for good information, stuff you can use," Dr. Oz said.

And like last year Channel 4 anchors and reporters will all be there, plus Snowbird.

We'll even give you the chance to try out your weather forecasting skills and take a shot at anchoring the news.

You never know who will join us. Last year, Vanderbilt alumnus and Today Show co-host Willie Geist joined us to guest host some of our coverage.

If you would like more information about participating in this year's Healthy 4 Life expo, just send us an email to

We hope to see you there.
