Up until the highly anticipated transition to OWN: THE OPRAH WINFREY NETWORK in January 2011, Discovery Health will present the best of what the network has to offer through 2010's fourth quarter.

Third quarter will also feature a premiere-packed BABY WEEK, marking the final edition of the network's signature programming event.

"Over the past 11 years, Discovery Health has introduced the world to beloved experts, remarkable families and the compelling personal stories of incredible individuals," said Laura Michalchyshyn, president and general manager, Discovery Health, Planet Green, FitTV and TreeHugger.com.

"From an enormously creative development slate to award-winning programs, we are humbled to know that our programming has touched millions of viewers-and we're enormously proud of the legacy we leave behind."

To finish out Discovery Health's run, the network will continue to be programmed with theme nights focusing on popular programming genres airing every night of the week. From puzzling medical mysteries, to families big and small, to encouraging tales of personal transformation, Discovery Health will continue to touch, inspire and surprise audiences up until the end. Fourth quarter will also feature buzz-worthy specials and stunts, including the second edition of the popular programming event NEW YEAR, NEW YOU.
