Join Us As We

Activate Scottsdale, Arizona

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


HonorHealth is bringing together civic, business, and community leaders to work with Blue Zones to begin a community assessment in Scottsdale that would determine how to make it a healthier place to live, work, grow up, and grow old.


HonorHealth has served the communities of Scottsdale and Phoenix for nearly 100 years. Our roots run deep in Arizona – but we understand that our communities need more than just accessible healthcare to be truly healthy. We have a strong legacy of partnering with other like-minded organizations that are working to improve the health and wellbeing of everyone we serve. Joining together with Blue Zones to help make the city of Scottsdale a healthier place to live and work enables us to go beyond the traditional expectations of a healthcare system.  We are proud to be a part of this effort.


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

In this phase, Blue Zones global experts are performing a Readiness Assessment, a structured exploration of Scottsdale. 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.



Activate Scottsdale Community Leadership Event

Join HonorHealth and the City of Scottsdale on March 2, 2022, for the Activate Scottsdale Community Event to hear from the Blue Zones team of national experts as they begin their assessment of our community. Inspired by the world’s longest-lived cultures, Blue Zones helps communities live better and longer by improving their environment in a variety of ways. Becoming a Blue Zones community begins with the readiness assessment. With our help, Blue Zones will conduct a structured exploration of our community to build a plan for this exciting change.
