Blue Zone Community Discussion Thursday

Making The Dalles a “Blue Zone” community will be the subject of a pair of informational meetings on Thursday.  A number of area organizations are working to making The Dalles one of only three Blue Zone project locations in the state.  Lauren Kraemer of OSU Extension says the Blue Zone concept stems from the work of Dan Buettner, a National Geographic fellow who studied areas of the world where people commonly live to be 100 or more to find common traits.  Those traits included a diet heavy in fruits and vegetables, getting plenty of physical movement, reducing stress, and having a solid network of friends and family.  The meetings will take place at noon and 4 p.m. on Thursday at One Community Health in The Dalles.
