The ALR2015 conference was held February 22 - 25, 2015 at the Paradise Point Hotel in San Diego, CA.
The theme of the 2015 conference, “The Science of Policy Implementation”, explored the process of taking scientific findings from the research field of active living to inform policies, then ensuring the policies are put into practice to increase population-level physical activity.
Our aim is to make the ALR conference the premier venue for both cutting-edge research and for making findings useable by non-scientists. Thus, the 2015 conference agenda included both research and practice/policy presentations.
