George J. Febish and Jo Anne Oxley
About the Authors
An entrepreneur and computer executive for most of his career, George J. Febish co-founded two companies, taking one public, and has published several books and numerous articles. He has been engaged as a speaker on numerous occasions by Microsoft and others. George graduated from Seton Hall University with a degree in physics and has always had an interested in DNA and how our bodies actually work. During his years working in the computer industry, it occurred to him that DNA was so much like a computer program. After hearing about epigenetics, he read everything he could find on this new field. George is also interested in why, in an age of new drugs, therapies and break-throughs, Americans are getting sicker and why the best we seem to be able to do is help them live longer with their illnesses, rather than cure them.
Jo Anne Oxley has had a collection of intimate in-depth experiences with the medical industry. For most of her career, Jo Anne has worked in the medical industry in electronic medical record software sales and also as practice administrator to various specialty physician groups. She has also had the misfortunate experiences of having a daughter who has suffered a chronic, but largely undiagnosed illness for over a decade, and a husband who was diagnosed and succumbed to a terminal illness. While Jo Anne feels that the medical industry is doing the best it has been trained to do, she is convinced that the emphasis must change to how an individual can stay healthy, rather than how to treat them once they become ill.
