Charting a Course to Long Life

Feb 21, 2014

Cancer is a devastating disease, and treating it often means ravaging the body with toxic drugs and radiation. Renowned oncologist David Agus knows how difficult it is to remedy this and other common afflictions, like heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure. So instead of simply treating disease, he wants people to take steps to prevent themselves getting sick in the first place. Agus has written a guidebook to healthful habits and he'll join us Monday to talk about what we all can do to live long, illness-free lives.

Dr. David Agus is a professor of medicine and engineering at the University of Southern California Keck School of Medicine and Viterbi School of Engineering and heads USC’s Westside Cancer Center and the Center for Applied Molecular Medicine. He's the author two books, The End of Illness [Amazon|Indiebound], and his newest, A Short Guide to a Long Life [Amazon|Indiebound]
