A program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Active Living Research supports research to inform policy and environmental strategies for increasing physical activity among children and adolescents, decreasing their sedentary behaviors, and preventing obesity.
The program places special emphasis on strategies with the potential to reach children and youths between the ages of 3 and 18 who are at highest risk for obesity — African American, Latino, American Indian, Alaska Native, Asian American, and Pacific Islander children, as well as children who live in underresourced and lower-income communities.
Grants funded under this Call for Proposals are expected to advance RWJF's efforts to reverse the childhood obesity epidemic by 2015. This CFP consists of grant opportunities for specified research topics and dissertation awards. It also includes funding opportunities for New Connections grants made available through the Active Living Research program.
