Healthy People in Healthy Communities Conference
March 2, 2017 @ 8:00 am - March 3, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
The 44th Annual Healthy People in Healthy Communities Conference will host the First International Symposium on Blue Zones Area Science.
In the midst of celebrating the School of Public Health’s 50th anniversary, the 2017 Conference is an opportunity to honor our past and embrace the future of public health.
For the first time, research teams from the five demographically and epidemiologically confirmed blue zone regions will converge under the same roof to share their findings, and draw present day application for modern communities.
The Symposium seeks to underline the university’s legacy of promoting health, longevity and wholeness, while creating a platform for exploring the role of blue zone areas as a paradigm for public health practice.
