Active Living Research Seeks Conference Abstracts and Award Nominations

Active Living Research (ALR), a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, announces a call for presentation and workshop abstracts, and a call for award nominations for its 10th Annual Conference on February 26-28, 2013, in San Diego, CA.  The conference theme is “Achieving Change Across Sectors: Integrating Research, Policy and Practice,” and recognizes the importance of engaging people from multiple disciplines to increase physical activity and help reverse the obesity epidemic. This is a fantastic conference – we encourage our partners that love data as much as we do – to consider attending.

Call for Abstracts – Research & Practice Tracks
The aim of the ALR conference is to be the premier venue for both cutting-edge research on active living and for making findings accessible to and useable by non-scientists.  Thus, the 2013 conference will be organized into two tracks – research and practice.

ALR welcomes abstracts related to all populations and active living environments and policies in all settings. Abstracts related to the conference theme and abstracts on research and practice that inform strategies for increasing physical activity among racial and ethnic minority youth and those living in lower-income communities who are at greatest risk for obesity are encouraged.
