Coalitions and Networks for Active Living (CANAL) project led by Dr. Jill Litt
The Physical Activity Policy Research Network (PAPRN) is a thematic research network funded since 2004 to study the process, implementation and outcomes of policies related to improving population physical activity. Ten PRCs and 6 affiliate centers collaborate on with this network.
One of the current projects is titled: Coalitions and Networks for Active Living (CANAL), led by Dr. Jill Litt at the PRC-Colorado and Susan Zieff at San Francisco State University. The purpose of the project is to understand the structures and processes of public health collaboratives that are key to promoting environmental and policy change at the community level.
In preparation for this study, the CANAL group collected information on 24 groups across the nation through website searches and PAPRN recommendations. The next phase in the study is to expand their reach to include an additional 25 collaboratives and interview all groups about their functions, activities and environment and policy actions to promote physical activity.
If you would like to participate in this study or know of a coalition or network that would be appropriate for inclusion, please contact Dr. Litt, Jill.Litt@ucdenver.edu , or Dr. Zieff, email@example.com, or download the nomination form from the PAPRN website: http://paprn.wustl.edu/Pages/Homepage.aspx.
