About our speaker

Joe Piscatella is one of the foremost authorities on lifestyle habits and cardiac health in the United States. His experience of coronary bypass surgery at age 32 in 1977, and his subsequent reversal of heart disease, give him a real-life perspective you’ll appreciate.

Joe lectures extensively on wellness throughout the United States, Canada and Great Britain to hospitals and medical schools, Fortune 1000 companies and professional associations. His audiences range from Boeing and Exxon to the Federal Reserve Bank and the US Naval War College. You’ll be entertained by his practical advice, take-home tools and dynamic delivery – all with a sprinkling of humor.

Joe is the author of Don’t Eat Your Heart Out and eleven other best-selling books. You may have seen him as the host of three PBS television specials or as a guest on TV and radio shows. Now’s your chance to see and hear him in person.
