Wanting to learn more about the Blue Zone initiative, I spoke for an hour last month at their invitation with Beverly Brokaw and Kara Ash, two advocates for Wilton’s adoption of the Blue Zone program.
I had already attended a portion of the public presentation at the Clune Center on this subject more than a month ago made by one of the national leaders of the program and left it far less than fully impressed. I also read a letter to the editor published shortly afterwards criticizing the program heavily. So I came to this meeting with Beverly and Kara a confirmed skeptic. I left less so, though certainly not completely convinced.
