Breakfast Roundtables

Back to Conference Overview

The Monday and Tuesday breakfast round tables offer an opportunity to meet, have breakfast, and network with leaders in health behavior research.  Meals are included in the registration fee. All conference participants are invited to attend breakfast.  Several roundtables are especially designed for first-time conference attendees, new or junior faculty 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.
