GPAHU ANNUAL CONFERENCE
A collective approach to progress, process, and programs to help build our industry.
Wednesday April 26, 2023
Plan to join us for the GPAHU marquis event of the year as we gather, in person, with our fellow industry leaders at this year’s conference to learn how our Association is shaping health care policy both in Harrisburg and Washington, D.C., learn about the state of our insurance markets in Philadelphia, and meet with exhibitors who continue to deliver significant value to health care consumers. You will not want to miss this event!
Key Note Speaker
Nick Buettner is the Vice President at Blue Zones, LLC. He is responsible for developing and implementing the Blue Zones Project in all Blue Zones Communities and corporate sites across the US.
In 2004, Nick Buettner & Dan Buettner teamed up with National Geographic and the world’s best longevity researchers to identify pockets around the world where people live measurably longer and better. In these “Blue Zones” they found that people reach age 100 at rates 10 times greater than in the United States.
After identifying 5 of the world’s Blue Zones, the Blue Zones team and National Geographic took teams of scientists to each location to identify lifestyle characteristics that might explain longevity. They found that the lifestyles of all Blue Zones residents shared nine specific characteristics. They call these characteristics the Power 9®.
For the last 12 years, Nick has been bringing these lessons to 75 communities around the United States which he will share more about at our Conference.
