Prevent a Second Heart Attack, was inspired by her father's death at a fairly young age (69) from heart disease, and by her husband whose heart attack at age 51, made her look very closely at what could be done to make a difference in his life.
She has been published in noted scientific journals including the International Journal of Sport Nutrition, the International Journal of Obesity, the American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine and the ACSM Health & Fitness Journal and published/ quoted in leading lay publications including Shape, Prevention, Men’s Health, First for Women, Woman’s World, Today’s Diet and Nutrition, Health and many, many more.

She is the guest nutrition expert on the national television show The Balancing Act (Lifetime). She has been an adjunct college professor at the University of Miami and Florida International University where she taught graduate and undergraduate courses in nutrition, health and fitness for many years.
Dr. Janet “practices what she preaches,” having completed four marathons and countless 5K, 10K and half-marathon charity road races. She also enjoys swimming, winter sports and weight training. A “semi-vegetarian” for over fifteen years (she eats fish) Dr. Brill supports the notion of following mainly a plant-based Mediterranean-style diet for good health and longevity.
