Paducah Moving Toward Becoming a ‘Blue Zone’
The Blue Zones Project® and the Power 9® have now been replicated in 38 communities in nine states. Not by enforcing individual behavioral changes, but by implementing permanent or semi-permanent change in the environment that nudges healthier behavior. Paducah is working to become the next designated Blue Zones Project community. Their approach would include hiring local leadership to charge forward with policy and built environment changes.
