We promote the use of top-quality research to build evidence on policies and practices that promote safe and developmentally appropriate physical activity for children. To this end, we conducted an extensive consultative process to develop a research agenda that will identify studies to promote and ensure healthy weight and healthy levels of physical activity for all youth, with a particular focus on lower-income and racial or ethnic minority youth.
Agenda Setting Process
The PARC team collected and synthesized a large amount of information from diverse stakeholders in key topic areas to inform the research agenda. Learn more about our agenda setting process and how you can contribute to revisions.
The PARC research agenda aims to inform future research projects to increase opportunities for equitable access to physical activity.
