Blue Zone Testimonials

“Luann is engaging, insightful and the issue she addressed is certainly relevant. Her commitment to continue to champion the Blue Zone movement in her neighborhood is inspiring. We need more of her in every community.”

Oluwarotimi Odeh, PhD., MBA.


What caught my eye when Luann was presenting was the way she spoke to the audience. Unlike most speakers I have heard, I was interested throughout the entire presentation because of her jokes and side comments. Sometimes she would tie the material to real life and provide examples. I was also impressed about the fluidity of the entire presentation. She was very knowledgeable and prepared, and it showed as she was speaking.”
