Local authors featured at World Uchinanchu Festival

Date Posted: 2001-11-02

The New York Times best-seller that has been making waves across America will be featured along with other local titles and videos at the World Uchinanchu Festival, held Thursday through Sunday at the Ginowan Sports Auditorium and Convention Center.

A book-signing featuring gerontologists Drs. Craig and Bradley Willcox, co-authors of “The Okinawa Program: How the World’s Longest-Lived People Achieve Everlasting Health - And How You Can Too,” will be highlighted at Booth 21 in the Ginowan City Sports Auditorium located next to the Convention Center. Drs. Willcox will be available for book signing between noon and 2 p.m. both on Saturday and Sunday.

Drs.Willcox, who are identical twins, will sign copies of the book and answer questions regarding the Okinawa Centenarian Study, the Japanese Ministry of Health supported study of Okinawa’s oldest of old upon which the book was based (some results of the study can also be viewed on the web at www.okicent.org).

The Willcox brothers first joined the ongoing study of the world’s longest-lived people seven years ago when they joined forces with Dr. Makoto Suzuki, another co-author of the book. The fact that the book has been so well received pleases the authors who envision The Okinawa Program as a wellness model for the world. How the Okinawans have achieved the world’s longest life expectancy and how you can maximize your own genetic potential, is the focus of the book that contends that lifestyle is more important than genetics for reaching the century mark.
