Calling all Cedar Rapids residents!

Join local leaders in making Cedar Rapids one of the healthiest places to live! We are working towards improving the health of all Cedar Rapids residents and applying to be one of 10 Iowa communities chosen to join the Blue Zone Project!

What's a Blue Zone you ask?

"Blue Zones Project is a collaboration between Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield and Healthways to help make Iowa #1 in the nation for well-being as measured by the Gallup-Healthways Well Being Index®. As a significant part of Iowa’s Healthiest State Initiative, it will bring the secrets of the healthiest, happiest, and longest-living cultures in the world to 10 Iowa communities as well as related tools and information for all Iowans."
