Active Living By Design (ALBD), part of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation initiative Active Living Programs, was a pioneer project when it was founded in 2002. “The focus was on increasing physical activity through changes in policy and the built environment,” said ALBD Director Sarah Strunk, “A significant departure from the more traditional focus on education and awareness as primary influencers of behavior change.”
As part of the North Carolina Institute for Public Health at the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, ALBD has amassed an impressive history of progress, partnerships, and policies aimed at creating healthier communities for everyone.
