Insightful Stories, Incredible Women
Career inspiration is all around us! The members of NWIIWA, Influential Women alumna and women in leadership across the country are filled with incredible stories that you should hear. And now, those stories have a new way to reach and inspire listeners.
NWIIWA is collaborating with PNW to launch a new web series called “Breaking the Glass Ceiling.”
Each month in this series, an incredible, strong, and accomplished guest will be sharing lessons learned from their life experiences and careers. Attendees will hear firsthand accounts of moments of triumph, failure, opportunities, and challenges from the people who lived through them, persevered, and emerged successful. Incorporating these perspectives into your own career development strategy can be a great way to build your unique pathway forward.
February’s “Breaking the Glass Ceiling” vodcast features guest speaker: the CEO of Community HealthNet Health Centers (CHN) Dr. Janet Seabrook . The conversation will be facilitated by our partners at PNW, Dr. Lori Feldman and Dr. Karen Morris, with questions at the end summitted by our attendees.Register Today
A little about this week’s guest Dr. Janet Seabrook:
A graduate of Gary Roosevelt High School, Seabrook earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology from Tuskegee University in 1987 and a degree in Medicine from Meharry Medical College in 1994. She completed her residency at Methodist Hospital in Gary, Indiana and is a Family Medicine Physician. Aspirations and a strong commitment to build on her career in medical administration, grant writing and lobbying led her to earn an MBA from Purdue University Calumet in 2005.
In 1996, the U.S. Public Health Service named Gary, Indiana as “the neediest U.S. city without a community health center.” While still a Family Medicine resident, Dr. Seabrook served on the Mayor of Gary’s task force and with the Indiana State Department of Health to obtain funding to start a health center (FQHC) in Gary.
Since that time Dr. Seabrook has led Community HealthNet in opening six locations throughout Northwest Indiana and oversaw the purchase of a mobile medical unit and a bus to transport patients to and from their appointments.
Dr. Seabrook is married to fellow Family Medicine physician Augustine Izah who is in private practice and they are parents to a son and daughter.Register Today
