On January 30, 2013, Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Blue Zones and Healthways announced Muscatine as a Blue Zones Project™ demonstration site in Iowa. As a demonstration site, Muscatine is currently working towards Blue Zones Community™ certification.
As a demonstration site, Muscatine will receive assistance from experts to develop and implement a Blueprint for making permanent environmental, social, and policy changes that transition people into healthier behaviors that can lead to longer, happier lives.
Please join Muscatine on our path to a healthier, happier community! Please see the resources below for more information, to sign up, and to join the Blue Zones movement!
