Nick Buettner
VP of Product, Blue Zones Project

Over the last 20 years, Nick Buettner has led 17 expeditions over 6 continents around the world. Three of these expeditions were to blue zones regions—places with the longest life expectancy and where people reach age 100 more than anywhere else in the world. Nick worked with his brother Dan Buettner, National Geographic, and a team of longevity researchers to identify and then explore these pockets of the world where people were living longer, better lives. He was the Executive Producer of the Blue Zones expeditions to Okinawa, Japan; Costa Rica; and Ikaria, Greece.

In his current role as the VP of Product for the Blue Zones Project, he is responsible for taking the Blue Zones longevity lessons to 50 communities across the United States. The Blue Zones Project is a community-wide well-being initiative that positively impacts the health of over 5 million people across the country.

Our Purpose

Join us on October 2nd for our 9th annual Lancaster Health Summit. Held this year at the PA College of Health Sciences, the Health Summit is a partnership between the Central Penn Business Group on Health and LiveWell Lancaster. It is designed to bring together the business community and other community partners to promote better health in our community. Each year, we focus on a different aspect of health and tie the issue to community resources available to affect change.  

In addition to providing attendees with insights into how overall life expectancy is decreasing in the United States and things that can be done to reverse the trends, we will also be presenting the annual Well Workplace Awards. Awards will go to both large and small employers in our community who have focused on improving the health of their workforce as demonstrated through their completed CDC scorecard.

The event also features exhibitor opportunities for those organizations looking to connect with employers and the social services community in our region.
