Last week, D Healthcare Daily profiled Fort Worth’s newest, large-scale wellness effort to become a Blue Zone. But in order to succeed in its goal of increasing overall wellness for city residents, organizers need input from those who live within the city.

Some background from last week:

Blue Zones began in 2009 based off a series of nine evidence-based “common denominators” meant to increase an entire community’s well being. Gallup teamed with Healthways to come up with a Well-Being Index, which has now garnered more than 1.5 million completed surveys that help gauge physical and emotional health, healthy behavior, work environment, healthcare access, and how residents evaluate their lives.
