Join our own Deborah Ferguson at the official kick-off of Blue Zones Project, Fort Worth from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 21, in the Round Up Inn at the Will Rogers Memorial Center.

Mayor Betsy Price will lead the kick-off event, along with featured speaker Dan Buettner, a National Geographic explorer and best-selling author of The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer from the People Who’ve Lived the Longest.
