It is difficult to condense 4 decades of research and 2 books into a few paragraphs. Dee's book, Zero Trends, is a relatively quick read which explains decades of research on health risk factors.
In addition to making a profound impact on the health of individuals and corporations, Dee was an engaging, fun, funny and thoughtful individual who served as a wonderful mentor to many, including me.

In my corporate benefits roles at large and jumbo employers, my teams and I were consistently honored with praise regarding innovation, breakthrough results and leadership. Dee Edington was a mentor and thought leader to myself and many in the industry.
His perspectives (often with humor only he could say), research, and publications were a North Star for us all. He is one of a very small group of individuals that I can honestly attribute success. My job was easy: listen, read, learn, then apply. My greatest honor regarding Dee was eventually calling him my friend. I will miss him greatly.
