On Thursday, October 21 at 7 p.m., as part of our Health & Wellness Series, Gene Stone, author of The Secrets of People Who Never Get Sick, will be our featured speaker.

The Secrets of People Who Never Get Sick tells the stories of 25 people who each possess a different secret of excellent health, and shows how we can all use these insights to improve our own lives. The stories make it personal; then comes the science, the expert authority, and the nuts and bolts. From probiotics to veganism to a daily dose of garlic, from yoga to cold showers, it’s an extensive list: 25 secrets to health and how to make each work for you.

A book signing will follow the presentation. Books will be available for purchase at the event. Gene Stone is a health-savvy journalist, writer, and former Peace Corps volunteer. He’s written and/or ghostwritten more than 30 books, most recently the national bestseller The Engine 2 Diet, with Rip Esselstyn; his articles and columns have appeared in New York, Playboy, Esquire, Vogue, Elle, and GQ.
