Dr. Michael Roizen, bestselling author of The Real Age Makeover book series and the 's nationally known wellness expert, will be the main speaker at Strongsville's next quarterly business breakfast.
Landing the popular speaker was a coup for the city, officials said.
"We are very fortunate to have (Dr. Roizen) from the Cleveland Clinic," Mayor Tom Perciak said.
The breakfast is scheduled for 7 a.m. May 17. The public is invited; for more information or to reserve a space, call Economic Development Director Brent Painter at 440-580-3118.
Roizen authored five No. 1 best-selling books in the Real Age and YOU series -- including YOU on a Diet and YOU: The Owner's Manual -- collaborating on the latter books with Dr. Mehmet Oz.
Painter said the idea to bring in Roizen started with the city's own wellness program.
"We've been so successful with it, we want to get the program rolled out for our businesses, to help them lower their health care costs," he said.
The Cleveland Clinic has also agreed to sponsor the breakfast, Painter said.
