Jordan helped his home community back in Iowa become a Blue Zone before he moved to Oregon to become a full-time Blue Zone advocate. He describes Blue Zones as getting back to basics. The Blue Zones project meets communities where they are and helps them expand the things that they are already doing right. They work with communities, focusing on small, easy ways to improve the health of community members.

Jordan, Aaron, and Scott discuss the importance of being connected to one another and how the theme of connectivity permeates the Blue Zones Project.

The Chetco Public Library large meeting room was full to capacity with 80 people in attendance on the night Jordan and Aaron talked about Blue Zones Project Oregon in a open meeting for community members. The Brookings Harbor Blue Zone Exploratory Coalition thanks Jordan and Aaron for a great evening.

Community members have a right to speak up about the needs in their area and what works well in one place maybe need to adapted to fit the needs of another community. We need to find what we have in common and come together in a unified voice. The people who have been most disenfranchised often have the most creative solutions. We need to be looking outside the current systems or we are going to replicate more of the same.

Seeing the glass as half full and the opportunities for positive change is the key to resiliency. We can transform our systems of care by people caring for people.
