SBM President's Message
Behavior Matters: The Impact and Reach of Behavioral Medicine Part 3
What a fantastic year it has been as President of the Society of Behavioral Medicine. The society has accomplished so much and is continuing to move forward on many exciting fronts. This Presidential message provides a snapshot of some of these exciting highlights as we prepare for the 35th Annual Society of Behavioral Medicine Meeting and Scientific Sessions celebration on April 23-26th in Philadelphia! As President, I have had the pleasure of actively engaging in Hill visits and have enjoyed working with dedicated leaders within SBM. In general SBM’s policy efforts will continue to be focused on protecting the Prevention and Public Health Fund and NIH funding of Behavioral and Social Sciences related research. Read more >>
Behavioral Medicine is Under Attack! SBM Responds
Maybe you’ve heard them, the none-too-subtle threats to social and behavioral science. Congressional representatives and even a few scientists are making them. The question is: What is SBM doing to stem these attacks. The answer? A lot!
Help Students get to the 2014 Annual Meeting
Sequestration has cut many federal research grants, and many students face the prospect that their funds won’t quite cover meeting costs. So, this year, SBM would like to expand the number of student volunteer slots, which creates additional opportunities for student members to have their Annual Meeting registration reimbursed. But we need your help! If you donate: we’ll create more volunteer slots for SBM students! Every dollar donated will help us reach the $156 needed to award an additional student volunteer slot. More dollars = more slots = more student attendance at SBM 2014!
SBM Membership Offers Multiple Benefits
Discounted Annual Meeting registration rates, free access to 21 Special Interest Groups and associated listservs that facilitate critical networking among colleagues, subscriptions to Annals of Behavioral Medicine and Translational Behavioral Medicine: Practice, Policy, Research, and free access to the SBM Expert Consultation Service, are among the many benefits enjoyed by SBM members.
