They are channeling all their energy, time, and talent into a new nonprofit organization they formed called One Day to Wellness to spread the good news that the vast majority of premature death and disability is preventable with a healthy diet and lifestyle. I’m taking most of this year off from traveling to write my next book, but they are launching a nationwide 100-city tour. Check out their schedule to see when they will be near you at http://onedaytowellness.org
