Active Living Research seeks presentations and award nominations

July 17, 2011

Active Living Research (ALR), a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, has announced a call for presentation and workshop abstracts, and a call for award nominations for its Annual Conference on March 12-14, 2012, in San Diego

The theme of the 2012 conference, “Disparities in Environments and Policies that Support Active Living,” recognizes the importance of engaging experts from multiple disciplines to address the inequities seen in many communities throughout the nation where childhood obesity and inactivity are the highest.
Call for Abstracts
Abstracts describing research results on all topics related to active living policies and environments are welcome and abstracts related to the conference theme are particularly encouraged. 
Call for Workshops (**New Submission Category for 2012**)
Workshops for researchers (e.g. methods, statistics) and practitioners (e.g. use of measures, dissemination or translation of findings to inform policy and practice) are encouraged.  These sessions must be interactive and have clear learning objectives.  Workshops can be proposed for either 1.25 or 3-hour formats.
The abstract submission deadline for presentations and workshops is August 19, 2011, 4:00 p.m. PT.
