Dr. J.O. Spengler, professor at the Texas A&M School of Public Health, has been named co-chair of the Active Living Conference to be held in Orlando, FL, February 2-5. The Active Living Conference is the premier venue for policy-relevant research and cross-sector exchange among scientists, practitioners, and policy makers on how to study, create and sustain active living environments. The conference agenda will have two focus areas: research and practice/policy.

The 2020 Active Living Conference theme, “Innovation and Imagination in Active Living,” will challenge participants to be creative and to consider unique research approaches, partnerships and innovative strategies that promote fun and healthy opportunities for active living.

This year’s opening speaker will be Mark Hertling, Lieutenant General, U.S. Army (retired), advisor to the Advent Health Leadership Institute, and a frequent contributor to media outlets such as CNN.
