Welcome to the 35th Annual Meeting & Scientific Sessions of the Society of Behavioral Medicine
We enthusiastically invite you to attend the 35th Annual Meeting & Scientific Sessions of the Society of Behavioral Medicine (SBM) to be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania from April 23–26, 2014. The meeting will convene at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown, providing close access to attractions that embody the rich and vibrant history of the spectacular and unique community of Philadelphia.
The 2014 Annual Meeting Program will feature the theme, “Behavior Matters: The Impact and Reach of Behavioral Medicine.” Philadelphia is a perfect place for SBM to celebrate its 35th Annual Meeting and to showcase the significant impact of behavioral medicine on health and health care across diverse settings, populations, and cultures.
Invited speakers will highlight areas that represent the broad range of interests within our diverse membership and describe important opportunities to expand the impact and reach of behavioral medicine. Featured presentations will address thematic areas including obesity, cancer, cardiovascular health, behavioral economics, health policy, dissemination and implementation, and mentoring/career development.
As always, your participation is critical to the success of the Annual Meeting! We encourage you and your colleagues to submit your most innovative and compelling work for presentation. Please check the website regularly to receive information about program updates, submission procedures and deadlines, as well as things to see and do in Philadelphia.
