Active Living By Design creates community-led change by working with local, state, and national partners to build a culture of active living and healthy eating.
All communities are healthy communities, where active living and healthy eating are accessible, easy, and affordable for everyone.
What impresses me about the way Active Living By Design works is the commitment to create learning opportunities for the groups and organizations they support and the openness to learn themselves in the process.
Active Living By Design has done nothing less than entirely redefine the approach to chronic disease prevention in the United States. Well beyond simply treating cardiovascular disease and the complications associated with obesity, and even more than merely encouraging and educating around diet and exercise, ALBD researched, innovated, tested, and refined the approach now being utilized by every substantive population-level approach to physical activity and healthy nutrition in the country.
Active Living By Design led the technical assistance on our Fit Together grant program and is now leading our learning network of food system grantees. Their knowledge, professionalism and expertise are unparalleled.
Through Healthy Kids, Healthy Communities, ALBD is rallying the leadership and community engagement we need to build a healthier future for kids and their families.
