Blue Zone Approved
September 23, 2019
Blue Zones Project is a community-wide well-being improvement initiative that helps make healthy choices easier for everyone in Hawai'i. When our entire community participates, the small changes contribute huge benefits for all of us: lowered healthcare costs, improved productivity, and a higher quality of life.
While many traditional health initiatives focus on diet and exercise programs, we focus on comprehensive changing a community's environment so that individuals are nudged into making healthy choices. We take a systematic approach to improving well-being through policy, building design, social networks, and built environment. By optimizing the places that we live, work, and play-we can make the healthy choices the easy choices so we naturally adopt healthy behaviors.
The Pa'ina Food Court at Maui Community College is now an approved Blue Zone Restaurant, ready to help you make healthier choices.
