As a pioneer in innovation, Corry is the first community in Pennsylvania to embark on its journey to transform well-being with Blue Zones Project.
Corry is prioritizing the health of its neighbors and investing in policies and programs to improve health equity for those who need it most. Our neighbors, teachers, and community leaders have made tremendous strides in optimizing the places where we all live, work, learn, and play.
Corry is a community to be proud of, and our well-being transformation is only just beginning.
More people report they are thriving in Corry: a jump from 44.7 percent in 2019 to 61.9 percent in 2022. What’s decreasing? Incidence of high cholesterol and worries over money. What’s improving? Sense of community is greater.
Blue Zones Project encourages people to optimize their homes and social environments via the Personal Pledge, provides opportunities for individuals to discover meaning at Purpose Workshops, facilitates volunteer experiences to help people connect with the community, and offers programs that deliver support through healthy social networks.
Today, 62-percent of Corry residents report they are thriving in life, compared to just 45 percent in 2019.
In Corry, a critical mass of worksites, schools, restaurants, and grocery stores have optimized their environments for healthy living. By working together to make permanent or semi-permanent changes, healthy choices have become the easy choices in all the places we live, work, learn, and play.
