Connecting Data and Decisions: Recent Research and Data Sources for Walking Advocacy – Held at Kaiser Permanente Center for Total Health

Thursday October 29, 4:00 – 5:30pm

Most planners and advocates do not have direct access to peer-reviewed journals that publish research. This session will provide a mini-course for those who want an update on the latest from the scientific community on walking. This event will take place at the Kaiser Permanente Center for Total Health.
