I wanted to let people know about the upcoming Ancestral Health Symposium: The Human Ecological Niche and Modern Health. The exact date has not been set yet but it should be mid-late summer of next year. (thanks for the proof reading folks!)
The concept is to bring together prominent thinkers in the areas of evolutionary biology, paleolithic nutrition and related topics. When I first heard about the event I immediately made a note in my “to do” list to book travel to the event. Then, shockingly, I was asked to present at the event. It’s tough to put into word how excited I am for this event. Many of the presenters are literally my heroes and hold more influence in my life than any politician, rock-star or movie personality. What can I say, I’m a geek!
So I will post updates as they become available but I wanted to give folks an early heads-up.
I’m making pretty solid progress on the book, Mat and Yael have provided amazing feedback on their edits. We are still tinkering with cover art but that will all fall into place. We should have pre-orders on amazon before too long and still looking for an early September for a release.
Blog/Podcast/New Site/Advanced topics course
I’m in the preliminary stages of a new site that will include forums, much more media and content. Video-blogs, podcast, education. It should be pretty cool and will help a lot of people get a handle on both the conceptual material and how to actually live along these paleo lines. After the book is finished my top priority it finalizing the curriculum for the advanced topics course that will be offered through Prof. Cordain. Mat will likely play the primary role in that material. This should be 3rd party accredited “out of the box” and as I’ve mentioned, should count for both CEU’s and Uni credits. Pseudo-science and Uni-credits! What could be better?
I just wanted to thank everyone for the continued support and encouragement on the book and other projects. I am amazingly fortunate to do what I do every day.
