FYI! What are Blue Zones?

Blue Zones were first introduced in the November 2005 National Geographic cover story “The Secrets of a Long Life,” by Dan Buettner, when he identified five geographic areas of people living statistically longer and enjoying more years of good health. In his upcoming presentation, “What are Blue Zones?,” Randee Reynolds, Vice President of Community Health at Mid Coast–Parkview Health, will present an introduction to Blue Zones, and how lessons learned from studying Blue Zones are helping people live longer and better. He will also outline Mid Coast Hospital’s involvement in identifying the health needs of our community and what strategies are currently underway to address them. Free, open to public.
