Art and Science of Health Promotion | March 29-31 | The Broadmoor—Colorado Springs, CO
Awareness, motivation, skills, opportunity…what is the right mix? There is growing evidence that systematic approaches are effective in motivating people to adopt or maintain positive lifestyle habits, especially when they include improving awareness of the benefits of healthy lifestyle; enhancing motivation to form and maintain positive habits; building the skills necessary to perform new behaviors; and creating opportunities that make the healthy choice the easiest choice. But what do we know about the relative importance of each of these four elements, or even the most effective approaches within them? This conference will explore these questions.
Webinar Series: The Great Outdoors
The benefits of walking outdoors and engaging with nature are well-documented. How do we create environments and communities that offer the opportunity to be physically active outside? What possibilities does this work offer to engage new partners, expand our thinking, and explore new areas of walkability?
