Community Transformation Presentation
Location: Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus
Discover Blue Zones Project’s unique, systemic approach to improving individual and community health by focusing on the “life radius.” By optimizing the settings where we routinely spend our time - worksites, schools, restaurants, grocery stores, faith-based communities and neighborhoods - we make healthy choices easier and naturally adopt healthier behaviors together as a community. We will provide insight into how Blue Zones Project works with sponsors and participating organizations to build strong local coalitions that transform the health trajectories of their communities for generations to come.
