WHAT IS THE BLUE ZONES PROJECT (TM)?

The UNI Healthy Campus initiative takes a campus-wide approach to creating a university environment that supports the health, wellness, and safety of its members. As part of this initiative, UNI particiates in a community-wide Blue Zones Project (TM).

The Blue Zones Project (TM) is a collaboration between Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield and Halthways to help make Iowa #1 in the nation for well-being as measured by the Gallup-Healthways Well Being Index (R). The Blue Zones Project (TM) is the nation's first, state-wide, comprehensive well-being improvement initiative. It brings permanent changes to policy, environment, and social networks that lead to lower health care cost trends, higher productivity and improved economic and social vitality.

The Blue Zones Project (TM) is a main component of the Healthiest State initiative. It encourages all Iowa communities to become Blue Zones Communities over the next five years. Through a selection process 10 Iowa communities will be selected to receive assistance from international experts to turn their community into a Blue Zones Community.  

WHAT IS A BLUE ZONE COMMUNITY?

Blue Zones is an organization founded by National Geographic author and researcher, Dan Buettner. Blue Zones study the longest-lived cultures on earth and shares their secrets. Blue Zones' scientific research and longevity studies have produced lifestyle management tools, content, and products that help people live well and longer.
