About the Project

‌What began as a New York Times bestseller by National Geographic Fellow Dan Buettner has now evolved into a global movement that's inspiring people to live longer, more active lives with lower rates of chronic disease.

View Dan Buettner’s TED Talk presentation, "How to Live to Be 100."

Blue Zones Project has strong support from the City of Fort Worth and Mayor Betsy Price, all three chambers of commerce and dozens of businesses and community leaders across the city. Now it's our turn to play a role in improving the well-being of our faculty, staff, students and community.
