Your host of “Informed”, Rob Lowe, is going to be taking viewers into the Publishing industry.



An industry, which is often thought to be shrouded in mystery is having its lid blown off in this latest segment from “Informed” with host Rob Lowe.

Although everyone reads, most people don’t understand the work that goes into taking an idea into print form and ultimately to the shelves of your local bookstore. Finding a publishing company that will not only review a writer’s work as well as publish it is one of the greatest challenges. Having an agent is one of the best ways to get your book recognized by a publishing company. Even once publication has been completed and the book has been distributed to the stores, the promotional efforts made by the writer to get the book recognized can take an emotional and physical toll on them. These issues along with many more are discussed in this episode of “Informed”.

“Informed”, hosted by Rob Lowe, is a critically acclaimed education series distributed to Public Television Stations and PBS Member Stations.

Physical Therapy is the highlight of the most recent episode from the “Informed” series, hosted by Rob Lowe.

Although physical therapy doesn’t invoke thoughts of hard work, it is in fact an intense treatment process. The steadily increasing life expectancy in modern society means that the majority of people will need to seek physical therapy treatment at some point in their lives. The need for orthopedic surgery has increased as the average life span has also increased. Orthopedic surgery is often times associated with old age, however, many times the surgery is required due to sports injuries or even slip and fall accidents. By the year 2020, the number of orthopedic surgeries is expected to reach an astonishing 6.6 million in the United States alone. Discussing orthopedic surgery is important when dealing with physical therapy because physical therapy is almost always the method of treatment after surgery.

Even without orthopedic surgery, physical therapy can be used as a tool to help heal and maintain one’s health after an injury. Physical therapy can also be used to help strengthen a person who has not received any injury in order to prevent one from happening.

This look into the world of physical therapy from the “Informed” series, hosted by Rob Lowe, will be distributed to PBS Member Stations on public Television Networks.
