Public TV & Dupuytren_USA

Hello,

I am a producer with Information Television Network, a television production company located in Boca Raton, Florida. We are the producers of the award-winning health and wellness series called “Health Body, Healthy Mind.” Now entering its 19th season, “Health Body, Healthy Mind,” airs on Public Television across the country. These programs are half hour health documentaries filled with expert information along with interesting and inspiring patient stories. You can view several of our programs at http://www.itvisus.com/programs/hbhm/index.asp. You can also see a current air schedule at http://www.itvisus.com/programs/hbhm/schedule.asp.

I have been assigned a half hour show dedicated to Dupuytren’s.

These programs are designed to be educational, entertaining and inspirational. Patients with Dupuytren's provide a real perspective into managing and living with the condition. With this being said, I am looking to identify a couple of interesting and articulate patients to be interviewed for the show. We are looking for fascinating and articulate patient stories. Patients should be willing to spend time with our camera crew in their their home. This is where we will conduct your interview and film lifestyle footage. We want to capture on video how a patient lives and manages their Dupuytren’s. We’d also like this patient to have an interesting story to share or a unique background, job or hobby. We can really get viewers attention by interviewing patients who are fascinating.

Ideally, I am looking for patients in the South Florida community. If you live in New York City, Marquette, Michigan, La Jolla, California or Atlanta, Georgia we may be filming there as well.

I look forward to hearing back from you guys.

Best,


Phyllis Man

Re: Public TV & Dupuytren_USA

Just a note to let you know that the Dupuytren Foundation was founded just up the road from where you are filming. We are located in Jupiter, Florida. As a new and struggling charity in hopes of helping find better treatments and eventually a cure, if you could just include a word or too about us and our goals it would be much appreciated.
Good work on helping spread the word about this disease and the people it effects.
Thanks,
Valerie Eaton

Dear Valerie,

Awesome to hear the Dupuytren Foundation is right up the road! We'd love to include the foundation, interview an expert doctor, (perhaps Dr.Charlies Eaton) and interview some fascinating patients in the community. These elements would make for a great program.

Let's connect as soon as you can.

Best,

Re: Public TV & Dupuytren_USA

Phyllis, I'm glad Valerie responded above. Dr. Eaton and the Dupuytren Foundation he established are at the forefront of leading the charge to finding better treatments and solutions for this disease in this country. You are fortunate they are so close by. I'm sure they can assist you with locating the patients you are looking for as well.

Re: Public TV & Dupuytren_USA

I would recommend that you contact Luba on this Forum. She has a story to tell about her Dupuytren's in both hands, has had needle aponevrotomy (NA) and radiation therapy (RT). The has Ledderhose's and had RT on her foot as well.
She is very articulate and has a very positive attitude.
Thank you and PBS for doing this service for Dupuytren's patients!

Hello Luba,
Hope you don't mind me recommending you, but you are a great spokesperson for Dupuytren's, Ledderhose's and various treatments.

Re: Public TV & Dupuytren_USA

Thanks Flora for writing and recommending and articulate and interesting patient. If Luba lives in South Florida, La Jolla, CA, Marquette, Michigan or Atlanta, GA, I would love to hear from her and learn more about her story. phyllis@itvisus.com

Thanks for responding to my post.

Best,
