Interdisciplinary Approaches to Physical Activity: Built Environment Research and Translation to Policy

Downtown Campus

Featuring Dr. James F. Sallis, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Family Medicine and Public Health at University of California San Diego and Professorial Fellow at Australian Catholic University, Melbourne

Using his group’s national and international studies of built environments and physical activity, Dr. Sallis will describe the growth of policy-oriented research that is highly interdisciplinary in nature. He will provide a summary of what has been learned as well as related policy recommendations. He will emphasize the need, and propose several options, for translating research to practice and policy, drawing from a newly-published model. The talk will end with evidence that physical activity research is making an impact on policy and practice.
