“Gary Taubes is in the building!” exclaimed Foodloose host Dr. Maryanne Demasi. Gary was scheduled to arrive at Iceland’s international airport the morning of the conference, and he’d already missed his keynote slot. British cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra had assumed Gary’s position, and I’d started to wonder if the rest of the speakers would be advanced in the same way. Fortunately, that was not to be the case, and Gary delivered an impressive display of public speaking of the likes I’ve not seen before. The man barely looked down once during the entire presentation and spoke with extraordinary fluency. The Harpa concert hall that hosted the event was even more impressive than Gary's public speaking, the island even more impressive still.
The day after the conference, I had the chance to sit down with Tommy and discuss what was presented at the first ever Icelandic Health Symposium event.
We loved our time on the island and can’t wait to return next year.
