The PATH Foundation is excited to host an evening with Dan Buettner, New York Times bestselling author, on Thursday, October 12.  The event will be open to the public, and it will be held at the Highland School Rice Theater.  Details on registration and more will be announced in late August.

Buettner, who is a National Geographic Fellow, is renowned for his work on discovering Blue Zones -- communities whose residents live the longest and happiest lives. To date, he has discovered five of these Blue Zones: Sardinia, Italy; Loma Linda, California; Nicoya, Costa Rica; Ikaria, Greece; and Okinawa, Japan.

Dan and his team used demographic research to determine traits shared by these longevity hot spots. The work is the focus of his bestselling books The Blue Zones, The Blue Zones Solutions, and Thrive.  His upcoming book, The Blue Zones of Happiness, will be released in early October.

Most recently, Dan is featured in Carl Reiner’s HBO documentary If You’re Not in the Obit, Eat Breakfast. He is also a frequent guest on NBC’s Today Show discussing the keys to happy and healthy living.
