    This latest announcement rounds out a series of major Blue Zones Project firsts across the state—all within just 10 months after launching in October of 2015:

    • Big City Diner, Kailua – 1st Blue Zones Project Approved restaurant
    • Castle Medical Center – 1st community-based Blue Zones Project Approved worksite
    • Chiefess Kapiolani Elementary – 1st Blue Zones Project Approved public school
    • Parker School – 1st Blue Zones Project Approved private school

    The Blue Zones Project was developed to improve the health and well-being of Hawai‘i, “where we live, learn, work and play.” Blue Zones Project is a community-wide well-being improvement initiative to help make healthy choices easier in the state. The initiative was brought to Hawai‘i as a part of an innovative partnership between HMSA and Blue Zones Project by Healthways.
