Living Research Seeks Conference Abstracts
Research (ALR), a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, has
announced a call for presentation and workshop abstracts for its 11th
Annual Conference on March 9-12, 2014, in San Diego, CA. The theme of the
2014 conference, "Niche to Norm,” recognizes the importance of advancing active
living from an emerging research field with limited results and impact to
well-accepted findings that regularly guide decision-making across sectors to
create more active communities.
Abstracts – Research & Practice Tracks
aim of the ALR conference is to be the premier venue for both cutting-edge
research and for making findings accessible to and useable by
non-scientists. Thus, the 2014 conference agenda will include both
research and practice/policy presentations.
related to all populations and active living environments and policies in all
settings are welcome. Submissions related to the conference theme and
research and practice/policies that inform strategies for increasing physical
activity among racially and ethnically diverse populations of youth and those
living in lower-income communities who are at greatest risk for obesity are
high quality workshops for researchers (e.g. methods, statistics) and
practitioners (e.g., use of measures or tools, dissemination, translation or
scalability of findings to inform policy and practice). These sessions must be
interactive and have clear learning objectives. Workshops can be proposed for
either 1.5 or 3-hour formats.
