Live Long, Die Short: Authentic Health and Successful Aging with Dr. Roger Landry

Dr. Roger Landry, MD, MPH, is a retired, highly decorated full colonel, former chief flight surgeon at the Air Force Surgeon General’s Office in Washington, and preventive medicine physician who has spent over a decade smashing stereotypes of aging and redefining the possibilities of older adulthood.

He has conducted extensive practical research on the influence of lifestyle on the aging process and compiled his findings in his book Live Long, Die Short: A Guide to Authentic Health and Successful Aging, which AARP has endorsed, was a top pick by MORE magazine, and received gold award honors by Living Now Book Awards.

  • How to recognize and address personal risks that may limit health and independence
  • How stress “rots us from within”
  • How to never again fail at making healthy lifestyle changes
