Nick Buettner is vice president of product at Blue Zones. 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. Over the last 20 years, Mr. Buettner has led 17 expeditions over six 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. He worked with his brother, 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. Mr. Buettner was the executive producer of the Blue Zones expeditions to Okinawa, Japan; Costa Rica; and Ikaria, Greece.
