Attendee comment: A very lively, dynamic speaker, Suzie M. Kalman kept everyone in the audience interested in her presentation for a full hour. She got the message to us loud and clear and in a humorous way that it is important to have a life, live for the now, to be positive, exercise, eat well, sleep well, maintain good health physically and mentally. Excellent motivational speaker. After the presentation, I actually felt empowered and energized. Yes, I can do it. Don't know if I will grow younger, but if I follow Suzie's advice, I know I will live longer and have a healthier and happier life.
