“Our articles come from the best possible sources – Horizon Health Network’s physicians and health professionals, who are experts on the topics covered,” says Donald J. Peters, President and CEO of Horizon Health Network. “We hope that you enjoy the publication and that the information it contains helps you in your daily life. We believe that healthier lifestyles and prevention of illness are of utmost importance, and our goal with this magazine is to provide a path to wellness through knowledge.”

Vibrant’s Editorial Board is comprised of health care professionals including members from Population Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Management Department, community members and a University student studying Journalism.

“By providing advice and guidance on relevant population health and chronic disease management topics, we are helping Vibrant become a valuable tool in communicating effective and preventative information to New Brunswickers,” says Allison Holland, Manager of Population Health Promotion.

The spring edition of Vibrant includes expert advice on such diverse topics as prenatal planning, the effect of electronics on teenagers’ sleep, the truth about male menopause and diabetes diagnosis in seniors.

No matter what your lifestyle, fitness level, or health profile, there is something in Vibrant for you.
