2017 Active Design: Excellence in Thought Leadership Award
The Center for Active Design has announced the winners of the 2017 Center for Active Design: Excellence awards. Congratulations to Active Living Research's Jim Sallis for winning the Thought Leadership Award!

Dr. James Sallis, Ph.D

This year's Thought Leadership Award goes to Dr. James Sallis. Two decades ago, academic researchers were just beginning to investigate how community design impacts health behaviors such as physical activity and healthy food consumption. One of the most pivotal figures making the case for this work was Dr. James Sallis, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Family Medicine and Public Health at the University of California, San Diego and Professorial Fellow at Australian Catholic University, Melbourne, Australia. This year’s Thought Leadership award recognizes Dr. Sallis’s influence in shaping the field, and elevating the essential role of scholarly research in formulating evidence-based design strategies to support health. Through his pioneering work at Active Living Research, Dr. Sallis has also actively promoted this research to built environment practitioners across numerous sectors, as well as to elected officials. He has authored over 600 scientific publications, and is the recipient of numerous accolades, including the lifetime achievement award from the President's Council on Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition, and election to the National Academy of Medicine.
