Welcome! If you are interested in living a healthy, vibrant life, LiveWell is your source of health and wellness information.

LiveWell links you to informative health media, encouragement to make healthy daily choices, inspiring stories from your community, and connections to others like you.

LiveWell was made possible with generous support from the John R. Oishei Foundation and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting in partnership with the P2 Collaborative of Western New York, the University at Buffalo School of Public Health and Health Professions, and Independent Health.


The little things you do for yourself – and your family – can help you feel better today than you did yesterday. Public media is your trusted, non-commercial source of timely health and wellness information on television, radio and the internet.
