"There's choices that I make in my lifestyle that affect how my health will be in the future. I can smoke every day and drink a pint of whiskey and eat dessert every day and I'm going to have a heart attack if I do that.

Thursday's presentation is part of Blueprint Binghamton, which is holding a series of workshops to improve life in the city.
