Date:5/14/2009

ctor of the United Health Foundation. "We jumped at the opportunity to participate with AARP and Blue Zones as they find new ways to improve community health through a holistic approach."

A dynamic website was launched at www.aarp.org/bluezonesproject to track the town's progress and allow Albert Lea residents to take the "Vitality Compass," a tool designed to project life expectancy and allow residents to track their progress.

National Experts Come to Albert Lea

The project is using national experts to bring the latest teachings about health and longevity to Albert Lea:

  • Longevity Expert Dan Buettner, director of the AARP(R)/Blue Zones(R) Vitality Project sponsored by United Health Foundation and Blue Zones founder, shared longevity information about his recent trip to Ikaria, Greece, a longevity hotspot where people are reaching age 90 at astonishing rates.
  • University of Minnesota's Dr. Leslie Lytle, co-director of the Vitality Project is an expert in children's health promotion and childhood obesity prevention and is working with Albert Lea schools, employers and government to improve foods and activity offerings.
  • At the launch event, national eating expert Dr. Brian Wansink provided information about avoiding "mindless eating," and offered tips for making over one's habitat. In Albert Lea, he will work with restaurants, businesses, and citizens' homes, teaching simple tricks to eat less.
  • Richard Leider, an expert in helping people find a clear sense of purpose, will lead a series of workshops free of charge for about 1,500 residents in Albert Lea to help them realize and express their gifts and talents.
