Click above to watch interview with Dan Buttoner, bestselling “Blue Zones” author.
The calculus of aging offers us two options: We can live a shorter life with more years of disability, or we can live the longest possible life with the fewest bad years. As my centenarian friends showed me, the choice is largely up to us.
— Dan Buettner
The PATH Foundation will bring a human longevity expert to Warrenton for a free event Thursday, Oct. 12.

National Geographic Fellow Dan Buettner, a bestselling author, will speak at 7 p.m. in the Highland School’s Rice Theater.

To attend, registration is required at pathtobetter.org. Mr. Buettner will appear at the second annual “PATH to Better” event, designed to inspire citizens to adopt healthier lifestyles. The foundation last year brought celebrity fitness trainer Dolvett Quince, of “The Biggest Loser” fame, to Fauquier High School for a workout with 400 people
 
A frequent guest on NBC’s TODAY Show, Mr. Buettner will release a new book, “The Blue Zones of Happiness,” two days before his appearance here. All who register and attend Oct. 12 will receive a free copy of the book.

Following his presentation, Mr. Buettner will sign books for those interested. The PATH Foundation also will conduct a drawing for five attendees to select area nonprofits to receive $1,000 donations.
 
Mr. Buettner has completed years of research on how and why people live happier and longer lives, including interviewing more than 250 centenarians around the world. He’ll share their experiences and offer practical ideas to help others.

“The calculus of aging offers us two options: We can live a shorter life with more years of disability, or we can live the longest possible life with the fewest bad years,” Mr. Buettner said. “As my centenarian friends showed me, the choice is largely up to us.”
 
His initial research led him to discover the five places in the world – dubbed “Blue Zones” – where people live the longest and are the healthiest. His article about those places, “The Island Where People Forget to Die,” New York Times Sunday Magazine’s most popular. His National Geographic cover story “The Secrets of Living Longer” was a finalist for a National Magazine Award.

His books “The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer from the People Who’ve Lived the Longest” and “Thrive: Finding Happiness the Blue Zones Way” have remained bestsellers, along with his book “The Blue Zones Solution: Eating and Living Like the World’s Healthiest People.”

The PATH Foundation works to strengthen community health and vitality. It makes grants to area nonprofit organizations and develops programs focused on health, childhood wellness, mental health and senior services.
