20th Annual Scientific Meeting - March 8-11, 2020

“Transforming the narrative to meet emerging health behavior challenges”

In an era of fake news, a perceived war on science, and social media influencers, it has never been more important for health behavior researchers to get reliable and accurate information out to the public.  The focus is to equip members with the skills to adapt their research to “get ahead of” new health problems that emerge when the general narrative is confusing.  The conference will offer skills-based trainings that can be applied to any health behavior topic to make our scientific narrative more engaging and relevant.
