The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has opened a new center in which they hope to build the evidence for built environments. The Physical Activity Research Center (PARC) was created to help further understand the policies, practices and aspects of built environment, especially in relation to creating environments that are safe and developmentally appropriate for physical activity for all families and youth.
PARC will be used to conduct studies that will help inform national efforts promoting active living. These studies will address the immediate gaps in research, and will relate to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s priorities.
