The Healthcare Leadership Council, a coalition of chief executives from leading health care companies and organizations, presented Blue Zones Project Fort Worth the 2016 Wellness Frontiers Award.

The award recognizes innovative entities that are contributing to the transformation and improvement of American health care. The council selected Blue Zones Project because of its successful implementation of an evidence-based wellness program that prevents disease and improves well-being.

“Blue Zones Project Fort Worth is demonstrating that a successful wellness initiative can change an entire city,” said HLC President Mary Grealy. “Fort Worth has set an important example, demonstrating what the collective efforts of health care providers, businesses, philanthropic foundations and other nonprofits can do for the well-being of their community.”

“Blue Zones Project is important to Fort Worth because healthy communities make for engaged, vibrant cities that attract businesses and families and support economic development,” Mayor Betsy Price said. “We are thrilled that the Healthcare Leadership Council honored this community-led well-being initiative that is making the healthy choice the easy choice in Fort Worth.”
