Time: Noon – 1:00 pm
Location: Hale Iako Buildings Ocean View Conference Room 
Title: “Blue Zones Project® – West Hawaii”
Background: Blue Zones Project® is a community-led well-being improvement initiative designed to make healthy choices easier through permanent changes to a city’s environment, policy, and social networks. Established in 2010, Blue Zones Project is inspired by Dan Buettner, a National Geographic Fellow and New York Times best-selling author who identified five regions of the world—or Blue Zones—with the highest concentration of people living to 100 years or older. Currently, 37 communities in nine states have joined Blue Zones Project, impacting more than 2 million Americans. The movement includes three beach cities in California; 15 cities in Iowa; Albert Lea, Minnesota; the city of Fort Worth; and communities in Hawaii, Southwest Florida, Wisconsin, Oregon, and Oklahoma. Blue Zones Project is a division of Healthways, a Sharecare company. For more information, visit http://info.bluezonesproject.com/hawaii/organizations
