Blue Zones Activate Anytown

Down Arrow

The Health Management Health Association  (HMHA) has brought Blue Zones Activate to Anytown to make our community a better place to live, work, and play.

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

We’ll work with local community leaders, businesses, and schools to improve roads and parks, improve public policy, and make healthy options available. These changes will lead to big benefits: lower health care costs, higher productivity, and a better quality of life for all residents.

WHAT WE DO

BUILT ENVIRONMENT

 

Communities designed around the human foot are healthier, more affordable, and better at attracting businesses and new jobs.

Our world-renowned walkability experts work with local teams and planners to implement public policies that promote movement: better sidewalks, bike lanes, public transportation options, and safer places for kids to play outside.

FOOD SYSTEMS

 

Public policy has a huge impact on healthy choices. People mindlessly make hundreds of food decisions every day, and will choose unhealthy foods if those are the only ones available. Community policy can help make healthy choices easier. We work with grocery stores, restaurants, schools, and large employers to offer and foods that are both tasty and nutritious. We also work with local officials to encourage farmers’ markets and movile grocers, and to limit fast food options in schools and hospitals.
