2011 Active Living Research Conference

02/22/2011 – 02/24/2011

San Diego, CA, USA

The theme for the 2011 conference is Partnerships for Progress in Active Living: From Research to Action, which recognizes the importance of engaging experts from multiple disciplines to address critical public health issues, especially active living and obesity.

Strong partnerships among researchers, policy-makers and community stakeholders are essential for identifying and implementing promising, sustainable solutions that are relevant to the people who are most affected. The 2011 conference will highlight successful partnerships that have evaluated or implemented policy or environmental approaches for increasing physical activity, decreasing sedentary behavior or preventing obesity, particularly among children and families. Such partnerships could be comprised of experts from multiple disciplines, such as public health, public administration, law/government, economics, transportation, medicine, recreation, urban planning, architecture, behavioral sciences, child care, advocacy or education. Research on the development of partnerships themselves that helps to identify performance metrics and "best practices" will also be highlighted.

The conference agenda contains a variety of breakfast roundtable discussions, keynote speaker, plenary and concurrent presentations, learning workshops, as well as a panel presentation. The conference is not CME (continuing medical education) or CEU (continuing education units) accredited.
