Longevity Summit brings latest health research to the valley

LONGEVITY PICMedford, Ore. — A two-day Longevity Summit in Medford brought the latest health research on living longer to Rogue Valley residents this weekend.

This is the second year of the longevity summit, and it’s grown quite a bit. More than 350 people
heard from 20 speakers. The event aims to share the latest health headlines, and show people how they can add 5 to 20 quality years to their lives.

“We distilled down 20 years of research into the best practices in terms of how people can lose weight, get rid of their headaches, get rid of their arthritis, work toward reversing diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, alzheimer’s, parkinson’s, et cetera,” Dr. Thaddeus Gala said.

The event is also a fundraiser for a school program in Belize. Last year, enough money was donated to supply a children’s before and after-school program with food for the entire year. This year, they’ve already achieved that same goal, and are working to do even more.
