The American Academy of Health Behavior

Breakfast Roundtables

Back to Conference Overview

The Monday and Tuesday breakfast roundtables offer an opportunity to meet, have breakfast, and network with leaders in health behavior research.  Because all Embassy Suites guests receive a complimentary breakfast, feel free to eat your breakfast downstairs in the Arcadian Garden or bring it up to the AAHB breakfast roundtables on the Mezzanine Level.  Coffee and tea will be provided on the Mezzanine level.  If you are not staying at Embassy Suites, please have breakfast before coming up to the roundtables. 

All participants are invited to the roundtables!

Several roundtables are especially designed for first-time conference attendees, new or junior members, students, and anyone wanting to learn about ways to become more involved in the Academy! 

We hope you will take this opportunity to introduce yourself and let us know who you are. Each of the tables will be facilitated by senior members of the American Academy of Health Behavior or selected AAHB Award Recipients, Workshop Facilitators, and Panelists.
