Event Location: Mountainlair Ballrooms, downtown campus, WVU

To find the path to long life and health, Dan Buettner and his team study the world’s “Blue Zones,” communities where people live the longest and are the healthiest. 

Buettner will be a featured speaker at WVU's Festival of Ideas on Thursday, Nov. 2, at 7:30 p.m. in the Mountainlair Ballrooms. In his talk, he will share the nine common diet and lifestyle habits – Power 9® – that keep residents of the Blue Zones spry past age 100.

A book signing will follow the presentation, which is open to faculty, staff, students, and the public.
