Description

The theme, Expanding Active Living Applications beyond Chronic Diseases to Synergistic Epidemics, or “syndemics”, focuses attention on the role of active living in addressing multiple intersecting crises, such as coronavirus disease (COVID-19), mental health, climate change, and structural racism. The focus will also include integrations with community-led built and natural environments and related programs, such as parks, recreation, libraries, and other quality-of-life public assets management.

The Active Living Conference highlights research, policies, and practices based on a multilevel perspective. Physically active behaviors have been well documented to prevent, intercept, and treat several common chronic diseases, including multiple cancers, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. Physical activity also supports the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health of individuals, families, and communities.
