The Community Health Network Foundation will bring national talent to its first Gala on Saturday, February 9, at the Westin Indianapolis. Former host and author Jane Pauley, and her husband, Garry Trudeau, will join the Indiana Pacers' George Hill, local corporate leaders and Community Health Network executives, physicians and volunteers, as they raise funds for Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) for area schools, cardiovascular screenings for student athletes and resources to educate and detect heart disease among the area's most vulnerable populations.
Pauley is a remarkable community activist for the area of Indianapolis where she grew up. She is expanding healthcare access and services with new sites of care on the eastside of Indianapolis bearing her name, bringing the number of Jane Pauley Community Health Centers to seven. The original Jane Pauley Community Health Center has experienced 39% growth each year since opening in 2009 and nearly 6,000 students have been treated at Jane Pauley school-based centers during the past year.
