SOZO Sports of Central Washington and the Greater Yakima Chamber of Commerce invite you to explore our collective opportunity to improve the health and well-being of all in the Yakima Valley.

Join us for a discussion regarding the state of health on the Yakima Valley and the best practices that can improve overall health, well-being, and longevity.

The "Blue Zones" Presentation - Tony Buettner

Yakima Convention Center


We look forward to seeing you May 8th and encourage you to invite key leaders in your organization as well.  

Come discover Blue Zones Project’s® unique, systemic approach to improving well-being – focusing on our “life radius.” By optimizing the settings where we routinely spend our time such as worksites, school, restaurants, grocery stores, faith-based communities and neighborhoods, we make healthy choices easier – and naturally adopt healthier behaviors together as a community. Blue Zones Project is based on principles identified during a ten-year worldwide longevity study commissioned by Naitonal Geographic and detailed in Dan Buettner’s New York Times best-seller.
