Hello- Please visit for resources relevant to policymakers, practitioners, advocates, and community groups interesting in environmental and policy change to increase opportunities for physical activity.

Active Living Research, a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, contributes to the prevention of childhood obesity in low-income and high-risk racial/ethnic communities by supporting research to examine how environments and policies influence active living for children and their families.

We are helping to develop a new transdisciplinary field of active living researchers.
We manage grants to help build the evidence base.
We have a resource center of literature citations and active living news.

In fact, it would be like trying to get a grip on defense spending while invading Pakistan. Or something like that. "
