1145. A Passion for Disease Prevention Ignited
Daniel E. Kennedy – Encore
“For the first time in many years, I felt as if my life had value and a purpose. And then my friend, who had taken me into his parents’ home, also got me a job. That really inspired me to see how a person could literally respond to a need and just share his entire life. That was a huge turning point in my life and started giving me an idea that even in tough circumstance something good could be waiting around the corner. That was completely 180 degrees from when I was always waiting for something bad to happen.”
Daniel E. Kennedy is a healthcare executive, counselor, author, and filmmaker. His passion for disease prevention was ignited professionally while working with thousands of cancer patients at Oasis of Hope Hospital, and personally, by witnessing cancer and heart disease-related deaths of his grandmother, uncle, aunt, and father. His philosophy is simple: its not good enough to live a long sick life when there’s the opportunity to live a healthy long life. Through the process of writing and ghostwriting 12 books on cancer and heart health, Daniel honed the skills necessary to create, write, and direct the 8-episode Healthy Long Life documentary series. His relationships with researchers and clinicians, developed over the last three decades, has given him access to the world’s top experts on healthy life expectancy.
