26 Sep 2013: Blue Zones and Longevity

For September, we're excited to have John and Jane Day lead a discussion about blue zones -- areas of the world where people live measurably longer lives.
John and Jane took their nine-year-old son Joshua and journeyed to one of these blue zones in a remote region of China and interviewed centenarians and Chinese health-seekers who travel there to be healed.  They spent nearly two years researching the question: How do the centenarians in China's Longevity Village manage to avoid the myriad of diseases from which millions of Americans are suffering?

Date: Thursday, September 26, 2013 Time: 7:30-9:30 Place: Mark and Elizabeth's home, 1194 South 500 East, SLC
