Blue Zones Project — Pottawatomie County, is now Pottawatomie Go! Or as our friends call us, Pogo!
In June 2020, Avedis Foundation, Sharecare, Inc. and Blue Zones, LLC announced that Pottawatomie County had achieved certified Blue Zones Community® status. After two years of deepening community relationships and developing a plan for long-term, local impact, Blue Zones Project evolved to become Pottawatomie go, or “Pogo.” This is a result of the commitment Avedis Foundation has to the health, wellness, and quality of life of our area.
Over the coming months we will be doubling down on connecting with health improvement efforts throughout our community.
We develop deep relationships with a broad array of organizations in a community to help make healthy choices become easy choices in all of the places where people live, work, learn, and play.
Check out our approved organizations
Blue Zones Project brings residents and business owners together with a focus on improving well-being for themselves and their neighbors. Approved organizations have shared goals, and when an entire community participates, the small changes contribute to huge benefits for all: lowered healthcare costs, improved productivity, and ultimately, a higher quality of life.
Get your organization involved
Connect your worksite, school, restaurant, grocery store, faith-based, or other organization to the community and elevate its well-being. Where we choose to live, work, learn, and play all influence the lifestyle choices we make. Blue Zones Project programs are designed to inspire, encourage, and promote well-being within your organization so your employees, members, and customers are more socially connected and equipped to positively impact one another and the entire community.
