NOLA dads celebrate Father’s Day: Dr. Corey J. Hebert

Written by
Not too long ago, we featured some of our favorite movin’ and shakin’ NOLA mamas for Mother’s Day. And now with Father’s Day on the horizon (June 19!), it’s time to feature those awesome NOLA dads out there!
Dr. Corey J. Hebert, Corey Jr. (18 years old), and Elan Jolie (20 months)
NOLA dads celebrate Father’s Day: Dr. Corey J. Hebert | IntheNOLA.comWith his signature bowtie and motivating attitude, Dr. Corey J. Hebert is known as the “Doctor for the People.” An Assistant Professor at LSU Health Sciences Center and Tulane University Medical Center, host of his own weekly radio talk show called “Doctor For The People,” Chief Executive Officer of Community Health TV, husband, and father of two, Dr. Hebert is without a doubt a busy man!
Dr. Hebert has his hands full with his two children, son Corey Jr. (18 years old) and daughter Elan Jolie (20 months). “My son Corey Jr. is a freshman at Brown University in Rhode Island and he is one of the smartest people that I know,” he smiled. “He’s kind of shy in a group of people that he doesn’t know well, but when you get to know him, he can be quite the pistol! He’ll be studying in China this summer. My sweet little thing Elan is totally different. Corey Jr. was a very quiet and reserved baby, but this girl is all personality and she wants it done her way! Imagine that!”

He continued, “New Orleans is such a special place to be a father. It has so much history of all types, including history that is related to people of color, and unfortunately, most people don’t know it. It’s my job to educate my children on their heritage so they can be proud African Americans.”
FNOLA dads celebrate Father’s Day: Dr. Corey J. Hebert | IntheNOLA.comor current and new fathers, Dr. Hebert has some great advice. He said, “There are so many kids who don’t have fathers, so you being a good father to them is going to separate them from their peers in more ways than one. Therefore, do what you need to do to get along with your child’s mother, whether you’re married, in a committed relationship, etc. Even if you don’t get allow along with her, you still must do what is best for the child and continue to be a permanent fixture in your children’s lives at all costs.” 

Dr. Hebert concluded, “Also, make sure your kids eat well and stay active. And I would be remiss if I didn’t say that you really can’t be a friend to your children until they are true adults. You must make them value education, family, and their community.  If they don’t, then they can’t have IPhones or cool stuff. As an adult, if you don’t do your job well, then you don’t get a paycheck, so if your children don’t do their job well, they shouldn’t get what they want either. It’s the way of the world and if you don’t teach them what’s right now, they are in for a rude awakening.”

Here are some of Dr. Hebert’s favorites:
Favorite Snowball Stand
Dr. Hebert: Snowballs are bad for you so I try to stay clear of them!
Favorite Restaurant  
Dr. Hebert: That’s a toughie because it really all depends on the day of the week! I really like Casa Garcia, Kanno, High Hat Café, Dooky Chase’s, Baru, Katie’s, Marcello’s, Taj Mahal, La Thai, and The Munch Factory.
Favorite Places To Go
Dr. Hebert: City Park is my spot because there’s so much to do there. Audubon Park is also one of my favorite places because that’s my favorite golf course in the metro area.
Other Favorite Things To Do
Dr. Hebert: I like to go to the French Quarter and just wander around because I meet a lot of interesting people and I think that’s what life is all about, meeting new people and seeing new things.
