Technical Abstract: The theme for the 2011 Active Living Research Annual Conference was "Partnerships for Progress in Active Living: From Research to Action." The rationale for this theme was simple: no person is an island. The theme recognizes that partnerships are essential to identify and implement solutions for community engaged active living research. Our intent was to highlight the importance of researchers,professionals,and community members/organizations from diverse disciplines working collaboratively to address childhood obesity and promote active living.
