Communities Foundation of Texas, along with local leaders, are thrilled to invite you to a presentation and conversation with National Geographic Fellow and New York Times best-selling author Dan Buettner to learn how Blue Zones can help transform the health and well-being of communities.
There are places where entire communities live significantly longer, healthier, and more active lives—blue zones. A National Geographic study identified the commonalities across the blue zones areas that have led to their longevity and vitality. In more recent years, 48 communities like ours have started on a journey to become a Blue Zones Community®, and we’d like to learn more about whether Blue Zones might be a fit for our community as well.
This transformation is a multi-year, multi-disciplinary effort that involves the entire community – policymakers, schools, restaurants, grocery stores, government, businesses, faith-based organizations, and individuals – and it only works if key leaders get behind it.
