OU-Tulsa to Host a Free-to-the-Public Blue Zones Presentation at the Schusterman Learning Center

Feb 9, 2016

On this edition of StudioTulsa on Health, we learn about the Blue Zones Project. This popular initiative, per its website, is a systematic "approach in which residents, schools, employers, restaurants, grocery stores, and community leaders collaborate on policies and programs to improve health." It's a community-betterment strategy that's attracting attention across the country, and that's based on the so-called Blue Zones -- those five different communities around the world (as notably profiled by National Geographic about a decade ago) where people lead lives that are, statistically speaking, much longer and healthier than normal. There will be a free-to-the-public Blue Zones presentation in our community today, Tuesday the 9th, at 5pm -- it happens at the OU-Tulsa Schusterman Learning Center, at 41st and Yale, and registration is required. Our guest on the program is Tony Buettner, senior vice president of business development with the Blue Zones organization, which has developed books, videos, lecture plans, and other resources that are all focused on "making the healthy choice the easy choice."
