The Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce is hosting an event Thursday night as part of their Vision 2030 plan. The Blue Zone Community Summit, which starts at 7 p.m. at the Brenau Downtown Center, will center around the best communities worldwide in terms of overall health, and what locals can do to improve the health of their own communities.

Dan Buetner, a National Geographic fellow and New York Times best-selling author, will lead the event, and he joined the ANW this week to discuss the ideas surrounding "Blue Zone" communities.
