Hopewell, VA: From Kepone to Blue Zones

Dr. Morris's goal is to educate the community about heart healthy lifestyles as a means to reduce cardiovascular disease and other harmful chronic illnesses that cause pain and suffering. After careful research, Dr. Morris learned about Blue Zones, places around the world where people live longer, healthier lives when compared to the United States. Blue Zones tend to have 9 key principles (called the Blue Zones Power 9) in common that cause such longevity, and Dr. Morris made it his mission to instill these principles within the framework of Hopewell Virginia in order to transform the city into the Commonwealth's FIRST Blue Zone!
