The Health Management Health Association (HMHA) has brought Blue Zones Activate to Anytown to make our community a happier, healthier place to live, work, grow up, and grow old.

Blue Zones Activate is a well-being improvement initiative to help kickstart the community to making healthier choices easier.

Blue Zones global experts will work with our local community leaders and organizations to learn and assess the state of well-being in Anytown. Then, they will build a transformation plan to improve roads and parks, improve public policy, and make healthy options available to all. These changes will lead to big benefits: lower health care costs, higher productivity, and a better quality of life for all residents. Their success in improving well-being in cities, businesses, and states across America make Blue Zones the proven innovator for transforming the health of large populations.

What We Do

assessment

EVALUATION

Blue Zones experts will perform a structured exploration of your community, and collaborate with leaders to assess readiness and build a plan for change. During this period we will: Educate and mobilize local leaders and residents, evaluate the community’s current state of well-being, identify the highest priority strengths, challenges and opportunities, and produce and present a plan for community transformation.

ACTIVATE

Blue Zones will guide and support community leaders to implement key policy changes—permanent and semi-permanent—that drive broad and lasting impact. A Blue Zones Activate initiative will prioritize, adopt, and implement key policy changes; inspire citizen awareness and engagement; attract additional resources; and, raise the community profile.

Blue Zones engages individual community members through online health and well-being assessments, the True Vitality® Test and True Happiness® Test, and an interactive Blue Zones online course. All are available for free to all community members as part of the program.
