Dr. Janet Seabrook, family medicine physician and CEO of Community HealthNet Health Centers in Northwest Indiana, has combined her passion for health education and her medical experience to launch a health awareness campaign titled “Your Health Matters” in honor of the organization’s 20th anniversary.
Seabrook has embraced her calling, speaking to groups and organizations on issues related to health care, insurance and the steady progression of medical breakthroughs. Her goal is to educate the masses about leading healthy lifestyles and following practices that promote longevity.
“It’s hard to believe that Community HealthNet will turn 20 this year,” said Seabrook. “I want to commemorate this milestone with a year filled with the sharing of health information and events designed to raise awareness on medical issues that impact the communities we serve.”
Seabrook will appear at J’s Breakfast Club, 3669 Broadway in Gary every 2nd Monday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. beginning March 12. Citizens are invited to stop by the restaurant to meet Seabrook and learn more about the services provided by Community HealthNet Health Centers and upcoming plans surrounding the 2018 health awareness campaign.
In addition, Seabrook has partnered with J’s Breakfast Club owner and fellow Gary native Joslyn Kelly, to develop a healthy options section that will be added to the menu later this month.
“When I visited this warm and inviting establishment, I knew I wanted to forge a relationship,” said Seabrook. “I saw an opportunity to offer some of my advice on healthy food options that will follow the same pattern of deliciousness that J’s Breakfast Club is known for.”
Seabrook and Kelly will also host a Healthy Heart Day at the restaurant, Thursday, February 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. inviting customers to learn more about their heart health while sampling the new menu items. On Friday, February 23 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Seabrook and her team at Community HealthNet Centers will host an Open House Mix & Mingle at 1021 W. 5th Avenue.
“We want the community to attend this event and see all of the advances we have made over the past two decades,” said Seabrook. “We’ve come a long way since we started in a trailer back in 1998. Now we have five locations across the region.”
In addition to the launch of a new website (www.DrJanetSeabrook.com), Seabrook will be featured on radio and TV, craft monthly blogs, and make public appearances to discuss health matters.
“The face of healthcare and medicine have changed drastically over the past few years, and our community needs more advocacy to navigate the complicated waters of wellness,” added Seabrook. “The more knowledge we arm ourselves with, the greater the chance we will seek a healthier lifestyle.”
