Our mission is to work with governments, the private sector, and advocacy groups to apply the lessons of research to building great communities. Below are just a few examples of testimonials from our past partners.

“Active Living Research is one of the most trust-worthy and experienced health-based research organizations in the nation. When we meet with federal, state, and local leaders, we present key findings from our briefings and research reports. These materials often site ALR's in-depth obesity prevention and physical activity tools and resources. Coupling these stellar resources with the ability to interact directly with ALR leaders like Dr. Jim Sallis, positions us to best execute our mission and make a positive difference for America's youth.”
-Jake Ferreira, California State Director, Mission: Readiness - Military Leaders For Kids; Lieutenant Commander, U.S. Coast Guard Reserve

“Jim Sallis and his team at ALR Consulting are one of the best sources anywhere for designing healthy places.  They bring expertise, vision, and energy.  They are terrific collaborators, hard workers, and fun to be around.  Highly recommended.”
-Howard Frumkin, M.D., Dr.P.H., Dean, School of Public Health, University of Washington

“The Mary Black Foundation partnered with ALR as it was developing its grant-making strategies in our Healthy Eating and Active Living priority area.  The ALR team brought significant expertise regarding best practices in the field and helped the Foundation translate the national research into manageable strategies that could be implemented locally.  Our relationship with ALR was invaluable as we embarked on planning and implementing a new funding priority area.”
-Molly Talbot-Metz, M.P.H., Vice President of Programs, Mary Black Foundation

“Active Living Research has provided invaluable inspiration for our efforts to build a more-active Australia – not only through research, but also through research translation and dissemination initiatives. Friends of ALR ‘down under’ have been pleased to take many opportunities to build on the ALR strategy, leadership and ideas for evidence-informed approaches. We can report that our National Heart Foundation has the environment and policy agenda and working in collaboration with transport, urban planning and other sectors at the core of all of its physical activity promotion initiatives. Thanks, ALR!”
