Society of Behavioral Medicine's 45th Annual Meeting & Scientific Sessions

Philadelphia, United States,

Join us for the largest yearly behavioral medicine gathering in the world! The Society of Behavioral Medicine's 45th Annual Meeting & Scientific Sessions is happening in Philadelphia, PA, from March 13–16, 2024.

The meeting theme is "Moving Behavioral Science Upstream." Policies, institutions, neighborhoods, and communities impact our behavior and health, and require intervening across multiple levels to change health for the better. There is, for example, a recognizable stress-related pathway by which upstream factors such as systemic racism, discrimination, and environmental injustice get “under the skin” to affect health and disease. Recognizing the multiple ways that upstream factors affect health is as important as developing multi-level intervention frameworks to address downstream conditions. Meeting sessions will prepare attendees to address upstream factors, for example by expanding theoretical models, by bringing expertise in digital health to bear on addressing upstream issues, or by incorporating more rigorous study designs addressing multilevel drivers of health and well-being.

SBM’s Annual Meeting is an in-person event, with no hybrid or virtual component. This is based on attendee and member feedback about ideal meeting structure, presentation experience, and networking experience. With the exception of recorded research spotlights, all abstract presenters should plan to present in person in Philadelphia.
