AVAILABLE NOW: PATHWAYS TO POLICY FOR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND BUILT ENVIRONMENT
Pathways to Policy: Lessons Learned from the Coalitions Linking Action and Science for Prevention (CLASP) Initiative documents critical success factors from the CLASP experience for informing physical activity and built environment policy work in jurisdictions across Canada.
