Main Line Health July 22, 2019 News Releases

With a focus on wellness, program will offer health tools and information to Philadelphia region

Philadelphia, Pa. – Main Line Health and 6ABC are excited to announce the launch of Well Ahead Philly, a community health education program that provides Philadelphia residents with access to information and resources to manage their health and live well.

“Everyone in our community should have easy access to health information that will allow them to make the best possible decisions for themselves and their loved ones,” said Bernie Prazenica, president and general manager of 6ABC. “We are excited to launch Well Ahead Philly through our television and online platforms with the experts at Main Line Health. We believe this will make a positive impact on the health of our community.”

“We’re thrilled to partner with 6ABC and present Well Ahead Philly to our community,” said Jack Lynch, president and chief executive officer of Main Line Health. “At Main Line Health, we believe that health care isn’t just about a single event—like an urgent care visit or an annual appointment; it’s more about the decisions you make every day and developing a long-term partnership with your care provider. That’s the idea behind Well Ahead Philly: to help you live well, every day, and to introduce you to our care team—many of whom are your friends and neighbors.”

Online and televised health resources will highlight topics such as chronic disease management, preventive care, behavioral health, and more. In addition, the program offers an online community at wellaheadphilly.com and a social media presence on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
