NYIT Creates Provocative Perspectives on Health Series

Health Series

Mireille GuilianoOld Westbury, N.Y.  (December 20, 2013) — New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine and School of Health Professions have launched an annual lecture series focused on current health issues.
 
The first of four lectures in the Provocative Perspectives on Health series is scheduled for January 29 at 4 pm in Riland Auditorium, when noted author and NYIT First Lady Mireille Guiliano will discuss her latest book, French Women Don’t Get Facelifts, which explores the “secret of aging with style and attitude.” 
 
The free event is open to all NYIT students, faculty, staff, and alumni. RSVP here.
 
“Aging and health are key issues in our society,” said Vice President of Health Sciences and Medical Affairs Barbara Ross-Lee, DO. “NYIT is committed to educating students and our community by presenting distinctive perspectives on these important topics. Mireille Guiliano will share clear-headed advice for all – including tomorrow’s health and medical professionals -- on how we can incorporate healthy habits for mind and body.”
 
Guiliano is an internationally best-selling author. Her books include: French Women Don’t Get Fat; The French Women Don’t Get Fat Cookbook; French Women for All Seasons; and Women, Work and The Art of Savoir Faire: Business Sense and Sensibility
 
“This book was very personal to me,” Guiliano said of the new book, scheduled for release on December 24 by Grand Central Publishing. “I want to know how to attack aging so to enjoy it to its fullest. And I knew I was not alone. I was not thinking so much about living a long time, but rather about looking good and feeling healthy in the decades to come. So while I pulled together my ideas over three years, I can say I researched the book over a lifetime. It is a multifaceted, holistic approach from the inside out, not just outside in, looking at skincare, diet, style, grooming, medical interventions and miracles, exercise, friendship, romance, anti-aging recipes and more.”
 
Future lectures in the Provocative Perspectives on Health series will feature Richard Cooper, M.D., director of NYIT Center for the Future of the Healthcare Workforce and an expert in the nation’s physician supply issue and Otis Brawley, M.D., Chief Medical and Scientific Officer and Executive Vice President of the American Cancer Society.
