Prevention Research Center Community Summit
For several years the Prevention Research Center has been conducting a research project to promote walking in rural communities <<http://www.albany.edu/sph/prc/projects.htm>>. As we approached the final year of funding for this project, PRC held a Community Summit, in which the 6 communities came together to share their experiences and identify ways to sustain walking programs after funding ends. Representatives from other communities were invited to come to learn more about how to start a program in their communities. The event was documented in a feature news story for local TV audiences.
