KNIGHTSTOWN – A Henry County town has been selected as the next location for “Now Entering…”

Knightstown will be featured in the program, the third in a series designed to shine the spotlight on great towns in our viewing area.

Several residents came out to learn more about the project April 6 during a Town Meeting. A big thanks to Sarah Ward for opening the town hall chambers for the meeting and the staff of the Knightstown Public Library for making our cameras available (to check out) there.

Residents will now spend the next several weeks collecting photos and videos to tell their stories. WIPB-TV will return to Knightstown on May 20 to conduct interviews with each storyteller at the Hoosier Gym.

Those Knightstown residents who want to share their stories should fill out the participation form at www.wipb.org/nowentering or contact Community Engagement Coordinator Michelle Kinsey at mkinsey@nullbsu.edu or (765) 285-5887.


March 18, 2017 – Cancer Treatments

March 17, 2017 No Comments

On Wellness Matters in March we will look at cancer treatments.

Cancer has had a major impact on society in the United States.   While there is still no cure for cancer, research has helped come up with new ways to fight it.   Using a person’s own DNA scientists and doctors can customize a course of treatment for those affected with advanced forms of cancer and advances in radiation technology have made it possible to be more precise when treating tumors or specific regions of the body.

Dr. Jeff Bird will be joined in studio by Dr. Salfi Ibrahim the director of the IU health precision genomics program at Ball Memorial Hospital to talk about their unique program.  We will take a tour of the new linear accelerator at the IU Health Ball Memorial Cancer Center with Radiation physicist Joe Butts and we will learn why colonoscopies are an important screening tool in the fight against colorectal cancer.
