Active Living Research Re-Tools Website
Active Living Research, a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation national program, has launched an enhanced website to make it easier for practitioners, advocates and policy-makers working on health equity to find needed, helpful information.
New features include:
- MOVE! blog – The latest information on our work and a way for you to stay updated with what’s going on in the field. You can share your stories by commenting on posts.
- Search – A new search function allows you to search all of our resources by keywords or topic areas, including park access, inequality, minorities, and lower-income.
- Audience-specific – We’ve added special pages for advocates, practitioners and policy-makers to help you locate information specific to your work depending on your role in the field.
- Disparities-focused resources – Several resources focus on racial and ethnic minorities and lower-income groups who are at highest risk for obesity and physical inactivity. For example, a research synthesis called “Do All Children Have Places to Be Active? Disparities in Access to Physical Activity Environments in Racial and Ethnic Minority and Lower-Income Communities” pulls together research showing that people of color and lower-income people often live in neighborhoods that do not support walking and biking.
