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.
Scottsdale is Arizona’s first city to conduct a Blue Zones assessment
Blue Zones experts will 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.
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® Life Challenge. All are available for free to all community members as part of the program. These customized online tools are designed to help raise individual awareness surrounding personal health and well-being, with the goal of increasing overall life expectancy.
The Blue Zones team is comprised of a range of inspirational, innovative community transformation and well-being experts.
“In an age when poor health seems so intractable, you’ve taken this community from a place of resignation to a place of hope.”
