Discovery Health Uncovers the Truth With Its 'Mystery March' Programming Event

- Beginning March 2, Viewer Favorites MYSTERY DIAGNOSIS and DR. G: MEDICAL EXAMINER Headline Thrilling Monday Night Lineup on Discovery Health -

SILVER SPRING, Md., Jan. 30 -- Discovery Health -- television's home for gripping, real-life medical mysteries and forensic investigations -- takes the genre to the next level with the network's month-long programming event, MYSTERY MARCH. Beginning March 2 at 8 PM (ET/PT), Discovery Health will air three back-to-back hours of its most riveting and compelling medical mystery programming every Monday in March.

Viewers can join in the search for the truth alongside experts and patients while watching MYSTERY MARCH's award-winning lineup:

Dr. Jan Garavaglia's most puzzling juvenile justice cases on DR. G: MEDICAL EXAMINER at 8 and 9 PM (ET/PT)

Inspiring all-new episodes of the hit series MYSTERY DIAGNOSIS at 10 PM (ET/PT)

Each episode of MYSTERY DIAGNOSIS profiles the stories of vigilant patients and their passionate advocates who refuse to take no for an answer as they endeavor to solve their own medical mysteries. The premiere episode tells the heartbreaking tale of 3-year-old Ashley, whose life is forever altered after a devastating misdiagnosis of a bizarre lump found on her right shoulder. MYSTERY DIAGNOSIS profiles the strength and courage of heroic patients and determined medical practitioners as they struggle to make sense of their baffling conditions.

MYSTERY MARCH will also revisit some of the most gripping cases of DR. G: MEDICAL EXAMINER, with each episode featuring the search for a cause of death in children whose lives ended all too soon.

G: MEDICAL EXAMINER draws viewers into a world of mystery, forensics and relentless determination to find the answers to families' lingering questions about the death of loved ones.

DiscoveryHealth.com will also launch all-new online elements including Getting Help, an interactive discussion forum on medical conditions, and a Shout-Out Wall where visitors can post their comments about the diagnosis and treatment process. The site will feature a refreshed game section with a MYSTERY DIAGNOSIS-themed quiz, medical mystery trivia based on episodes of the hit series MYSTERY ER and a brand-new matching game called "Match That Microbe."
