SBM President's Message
Behavior Matters: The Impact and Reach of Behavioral Medicine Part 2
This continues to be an exciting time for the field of behavioral medicine, given the increasing national attention on public health issues that highlight the need for behavioral and social science approaches for preventing and treating chronic diseases. I highlight some of the key areas in which the leadership of the Society of Behavioral Medicine is working hard to continue to protect and grow the future of our field. Two important lessons that I have learned in the past year as I have reached out to partner with other organizations are 1) that our strength lies in our ability to provide evidence-based approaches for developing effective interventions in real life settings and 2) that the multidisciplinary nature of our society continues to thrive and position us well for the future that will embrace more complex models of understanding health and disease prevention.

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!

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.
