Research

The Center for Active Living and Healthy Communities is engaged with, and helps to support, research efforts in the area of health and wellness. Much of this research is translational in that is seeks to translate findings into practices that engender positive health outcomes for our community along with other populations. We are strong advocates of community-based participatory research that involves community members as active participants in the research process (i.e., identifying research questions, gathering data, aiding in data analysis and developing and implementing interventions out of the results).

Some of the key projects that we have been actively involved in and/or have helped to support include:
