ALR2018 will be held February 11-14, 2018 in Banff, Alberta, Canada.
The Challenge: People living in walkable neighborhoods tend to walk more and be more active overall, but how do physical activity media campaigns affect people who live in walkable neighborhoods?
Make an impact: Effective physical activity media campaigns could further help children and families be more physically active in walkable neighborhoods.
What the findings are about: This study examined the impacts of a media campaign on cognitive (e.g. campaign awareness, message comprehension, and message acceptance) and behavioral (e.g. transport and overall walking) effects on residents in more and less walkable neighborhoods.
