This year, Chattanooga community members and organizations came together to jump start the Blue Zones Project initiative. This project is to help areas around the world live longer and healthier lives and Chattanooga wants to become the first city in Tennessee to take this on. UTC MPH was more than thrilled to lend a helping hand to jumpstarting this project. The first step is to hold a community wide event with key stakeholders and local community members to learn more about Blue Zones and what it would take to make this attainable in Chattanooga. This event was held on UTC’s campus and over 200 members were in attendance. Taking steps to better one’s health, reduce disparities and provide access to resources are goals for the Chattanooga Blue Zones Project. We want to make the healthy choice the easy choice.
