Developed in 2002 to raise preventive health awareness in the African American community, TALOTTD has grown from one day into a full-fledged initiative that impacts more than eight million listeners weekly. The year-long health awareness campaign is heavily promoted through Joyner’s “Get Well Wednesdays” feature.

Joyner and the morning show crew are excited about this weeklong broadcast and according to Tom Joyner, “On the Tom Joyner Morning Show we like to laugh, but our health is nothing to joke about.  It isn’t funny that our audience suffers from many health conditions that could be improved, controlled and even eliminated with proper nutrition, exercise and health care.  We all know that this is true…But, it’s time to do something about it!”

“Everyone knows someone who REALLY needs to tend to their health but they are too scared, lazy or stubborn to make the effort.  The Tom Joyner “Take A Loved One to the Doctor Day” campaign encourages us to take time and compassion to help someone we love get the health attention they need.”
