The Healthcare Advocate

Judy Gaman didn’t know the first thing about gardening when she started her horticulture hobby, but now she is bringing jalapenos to her co-workers and growing mounds of sweet potatoes. This is quite the fitting “escape” for Judy, a woman who nurtures more than just flora

Judy has been in the healthcare industry for more than 25 years. Currently, she serves as the Director of Business Devlopment for Executive Medicine of Texas in Southlake. In addition to this role, she is part of a joint venture, The Stay Young Media Group, LLC, where she works along side two physicians—one is her husband. Together they produce books, a radio show and speaking events.

She has continued her passion of getting behind the reason why things happen, and most recently authored her fourth book (with a fifth on the horizon), this time about longevity. Realizing it was about education – to teach people the how and why connection, she had the opportunity to interview centenarians. Judy became close to one of the 102-year-old interviewees and spends every Friday visiting with Lucille.Judy has been in the healthcare industry for more than 25 years.

Together they produce books, a radio show and speaking events.

It is in this role that Judy finds herself embracing a career and achieving the greatest good. Judy commented on the importance of empowering people about their health. “I witnessed people who have episodes with diabetes and depression, and I am really amazed at how much education they don’t have. Empowering really goes back to education. If we can educate the masses then we are giving them life.”

“Educating the masses” is quite a task to undertake, but when you co-host a nationally syndicated radio show with two doctors and serve as a medical expert on other national radio programs, it’s not hard to fathom.

“If we can get out in front of people - this is such a passion for me - and educate them and move them we can take the fear away,” Judy said. “Tell them here’s what you need to do, here’s why you need to do it and here’s the consequence if you don’t do it, then they’ll naturally want to take care of themselves. If they take charge of their health it’s not just about them, it’s about that child at home, or the parent that depends on them - it goes beyond them. If we can teach people, there is so much power in that!”

Judy, who has contributed her time to numerous philanthropic organizations in Southlake, has a strong feeling about community involvement. “There are people that are less fortunate because of their own doing, and there are people less fortunate because of no doing of their own, but we aren’t here to judge. We are just here to help. Service is what you do because that’s what our Heavenly Father wants us to do, not because that’s going to give us anything here, like a paycheck or kudos. You don’t do it for that reason.”
