Join Us As We

Activate Marshall County, Indiana

We are taking part in the global movement that has improved health and well-being for entire communities, cities, and towns. This new way of thinking and working will enhance the places we live, work, learn, and play.


The Marshall County Crossroads Team and local leaders are working with Blue Zones to begin a community assessment in Marshall County that would determine how to make it a healthier place to live, work, grow up, and grow old.



Blue Zones is the proven innovator for improving the well-being of large populations, with remarkable success in cities, businesses, and states across America.

Blue Zones global experts are performing a Readiness Assessment, a structured exploration of Marshall County. They are working with our local community leaders and organizations to learn and assess the state of our well-being. Becoming a Blue Zones Community is a three-phase process, and the Readiness Assessment is the first step.

Inspired by the world’s longest-lived cultures, Blue Zones helps communities live better longer by improving their environment.

With our help, Blue Zones will conduct a structured exploration of our community to build a plan for change.
