This week, HMSA and Blue Zones Project Hawaii announced that five communities on three islands have been selected as Hawaii's newest Blue Zones Project® communities. These communities will have access to resources that help them engage individuals, restaurants, grocery stores, schools, worksites, and other organizations in improved community health and well-being. The newly-selected Blue Zones Project communities include:
• West Hawaii
These communities join East Hawaii, North Hawaii, and Koolaupoko/Windward Oahu, which began their well-being journeys two years ago. For more information on what's been accomplished in the first three communities, check out the winter issue of Island Scene.
