Dan Buettner is a National Geographic Fellow and multiple New York Times bestselling author. He has discovered, through multiple expeditions with teams of research scientists specializing in population studies, the five places in the world – dubbed Blue Zones – where people live the longest, and are healthiest and happiest. They found that the lifestyles of all Blue Zones residents shared nine specific characteristics — the Power 9®. In 2009, Dan Buettner and his partner, AARP, applied principles of The Blue Zones to Albert Lea, Minnesota and successfully raised life expectancy and lowered health care costs by some 40%. He’s currently working with Healthways to implement the Blue Zones Project in 17 cities throughout America. Blue Zones works with a diverse group of stakeholders to create an action plan for communities to change their environments into safe walkable, bikeable and livable communities where individuals and businesses thrive, people longer, and health and quality of life are improved.
