Active Engagement for Healthy Aging

The Boston Roybal Center for Active Lifestyle Interventions (RALI) is dedicated to improving health in middle-aged and older adults by fostering an active and engaged lifestyle. The Center involves a collaboration among researchers with specialized expertise in healthy aging from five Boston-area institutions. We employ motivational, social, and behavioral strategies as mechanisms to increase and sustain activity, a key ingredient for health and well-being. 

"Physical activity is a promising non-pharmacological, non-invasive, and cost-effective method of health promotion, although only a small percentage of adults engage in it regularly. Even a modest increase in physical activity along with a reduction in sedentary behavior could have far-reaching benefits for individual and population-level health."
