One day when Dwayne J. Clark was taking his usual 20-minute commute to work, he heard four science-based health stories in a row on the radio. One story was about how a group of people with Parkinson’s disease were found to respond favorably to cycling three times a week. Another story was about the reality that many drugs tested on mice don’t work on people. The third story was about the health benefits of marijuana. The final story talked about why lonely people have more severe cold symptoms than others.
Listening to the radio that day, Dwayne, ironically realized that he had never consciously applied those lessons to himself. He didn’t think he needed to. As the CEO of Aegis Living, Dwayne had held a lifelong obsession with the pursuit of health — both understanding and obtaining it.
My back-of-the-napkin estimate is that I’ve overseen the care of more than 60,000 amazing human beings and cared for their health.
But as Dwayne moved into his middle-age years, the psychic impact of his constant awareness of aging and death made him intensely more curious about living a good life, and, even more, living the most magnificent life possible.
30 Summers More contains the “lessons of longevity” that Dwayne has amassed from a front-line view as the CEO of Aegis Living, combined with the latest health and wellness research on living well as we age. Also, the book outlines what Dwayne calls the “micro-habits” necessary for living our best lives as we move into our senior years.
As I continue my journey in life, I am confident that there is still a lot of life to live. So much left to see and experience! My ability to live longer is greater than I ever imagined possible. I’ve led a fantastic life and plan on doubling down in my next thirty summers on this planet!

A moving story of growing up in a loving but struggling family with a single mother whose life lessons left a lasting impression. Soon to be a major motion picture.
I care deeply about restoring civility, sparking creativity and encouraging curiosity. Teaching our children this means putting down the phone and having meaningful conversations — face to face and heart to heart. I believe that if we all do this, we will be better for generations to come.
We live in a society where parents bring their iPad to a restaurant so their kids can watch a movie, coworkers text from ten feet away, and many grandparents see their grandchildren more on Facebook than face-to-face.
