ALR2018 will be held February 11-14, 2018 at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity in Banff, Alberta, Canada.
This research translation project will focus on the dissemination of Ready for Recess (R4R), a program that educates school staff about the importance of facilitating an environment conductive to children’s physical activity and provides methods to modify the environment to increase activity participation in recess. The major objective is to disseminate R4R to audiences that can support or implement policies/best practices for physical activity during recess (superintendents, principals, teachers, recess staff, and other non-profit youth development agencies). Groups that will be contacted include: Action for Healthy Kids, National School Boards Association, American School Health Association, American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, and Recreation, National Association of Elementary School Principals, and National Parent Teacher Association.
