05-09 - May Breakfast Network Learn How Your Business Can Profit In A Blue Zone Make the healthy choices the easy choices for your patrons and be profitable! Tracy Rose currently serves as one of two Organization Leads for Blue Zones Project – Dodge County. For Tracy, being a part of Blue Zones has been a dream come true. Two years ago she picked up Dan Buettner’s book “The Blue Zones Project: 9 Lessons for Living Longer from the people who’ve lived the longest,” and imagined how amazing it would be to be involved with a project that incorporates the “perfect storm” of influence between physical health, healthy behaviors and environment.
