What is the Blue Zones Project?

Blue Zones Project is a community well-being improvement initiative designed to make healthy choices easier. This initiative has been introduced to more than 70 communities across the United States, impacting more than 4.35 million citizens. Blue Zones work is rooted in explorations and research done by National Geographic Fellow Dan Buettner, who identified the blue zones regions around the world where people live extraordinarily long and happy lives. The Blue Zones Project has now started in the Grand Forks community.

What is the RealAge Test?

The RealAge Test is a scientifically based assessment that helps you discover how old you really are based on factors like what you eat, your activity, your health history, and how you sleep. The results will help you set and track goals to lower or maintain your RealAge. This test is anonymous and HIPAA compliant. Over 45 million people have taken the test to date.

How will RealAge Test results help me as an individual and our organization as a whole?

  • A smarter assessment. The RealAge Test estimates your body’s age based on 100+ factors known to affect lifespan and influence well-being, from eating, exercise, and sleep habits to personal and family health history. Results have been shown to predict longevity better than chronological age and other measures.
  • A healthier work environment for all. Our aggregate RealAge Test results will help us understand how we’re doing in our effort to make healthier choices easier for our employees. Next year, we’ll be able to compare our collective responses with results from this year’s benchmark assessment. As we continue working to shape our surroundings to strengthen well-being, we’ll know where to focus resources and activities.
  • A personal fountain of youth for you. After you complete the RealAge Test, access the free Sharecare app. You’ll be able to see beyond your RealAge number into how different choices affect it. And you can use expert guidance, trackers, and other tools to chart a personal path to growing “younger” and living more healthy, happy years.
We are asking that you complete the survey by 8.30.22. The survey includes 76 questions and takes about 15 minutes to complete.

Thank you for your participation!
