The American Journal of Preventive Medicine, December 2009 supplement


The American Journal of Preventive Medicine’s (AJPM) December 2009 supplement issue is devoted to the Active Living by Design grant program and community partnerships.

The issue focuses on the ALbD national program and community action model and lessons learned from 15 ALbD grantees. It also features commentary from experts in the field. The practice-based special issue describes community partnerships representing a range of lead agencies (e.g. planning departments, community development agencies) with emphasis on increasing physical activity in special populations. There are examples of the planning process and implementing comprehensive approaches to increase physical activity, including how to engage partners, generate resources, increase community participation, design policy and environment interventions, increase political or community support, address challenges or minimize barriers, and keep the momentum going.
