AAHB 2022 Annual Scientific Meeting

“The Science of Health Behaviors in Times of Crises"

March 13-16, 2022 - Baker's Cay - Key Largo, Florida

This year's meeting theme is The Science of Health Behaviors in Times of Crises. Between the COVID-19 pandemic, weather disasters across the globe, civil unrest triggered by the deaths of Black men (e.g., George Floyd), and the current Afghanistan crisis, the people, organizations and nations of this world are responding and behaving in ways unlike ever before, particularly in terms of health, economics, social relations, policy, and much more. It has never been more important to explore and understand the ways crises are felt at every level, and how they impact the health and well-being of individuals and communities.

AAHB will be following the most current CDC recommendations for gatherings and will be requiring all attendees & speakers to be fully vaccinated for Covid-19.

  • All participants attending the Annual Meeting must be fully vaccinated for Covid-19 to participate.
  • AAHB is following the CDC Guidelines for facial mask wearing.  Face masks will be optional for the meeting. We recognize that some may choose to wear masks while others choose not to do so. Our goal is to promote a safe and respectful environment as we navigate our first in-person meeting since 2019. We urge attendees to actively communicate and check-in with others around them to promote a safe, respectful, and comfortable environment for all.

Verifying your Covid-19 Vaccination Status:

  1. Show an official CDC vaccination card and government-issued ID. A copy or photo of the vaccination card is acceptable.
  2. Show an electronic vaccination card via the CLEAR app or other state approved app. If you choose this method, you only need to set up a Digital Vaccine Card, not the full Health Pass. Get started by downloading the app on iOS or Android.

Upon arrival at Baker's Cay Resort, attendees will show their vaccination status at the conference registration table and receive their meeting badge after vaccination status has been checked.  This meeting badge must be shown to access meeting activities.

There will be no exceptions to this vaccination policy.  

We are committed to doing everything in our power to provide the safest in-person environment and experience. We will provide appropriate physical distancing in meeting rooms and hand sanitizer throughout the meeting venue.

We will continue to follow the science and monitor federal, state and local guidelines and adjust our policies as needed to ensure a safe and comfortable meeting for all attendees

Thank you for being an important part of the health behavior research community and coming together at this particularly critical time.
