31st Annual Meeting & Scientific Sessions

Welcome to the 31st Annual Meeting & Scientific Sessions of the Society of Behavioral Medicine

Dear Colleagues:

Michael A. Diefenbach, PhD
Gary G. Bennett, PhD

It is with great pleasure to invite you to attend the 31st Annual Meeting & Scientific Sessions of the Society of Behavioral Medicine in Seattle, WA from April 7th to 10th. The theme of the conference is "Behavioral Medicine: Building for the Future," and under this broad umbrella we will have talks and activities related to new technology, basic and new knowledge, health disparities, and career and mentoring activities. Needless to say, we as your program committee have been very busy during the last months to secure speakers who would fit into these areas and be of interest to all conference attendees. We also have been taking advantage of the incredible concentration of health and technology related resources surrounding Seattle and without divulging too many details some of the presentations will be very interactive.

We hope that you will consider attending and submitting your best science to the meeting. This is your meeting and only your participation can make it a success. Please watch out for emails from the Society informing you about submission deadlines and conference activities.

We're looking forward to seeing you!

Best wishes,

Michael A. Diefenbach, PhD Gary G. Bennett, PhD
