After you register, don't forget to book a room at the Washington Hilton conference hotel. Reserve a room in the SBM 2016 Annual Meeting & Scientific Sessions room block to get a discounted rate of $297.70 ($260 special rate plus $37.70 in taxes). A limited number of rooms are available at the discounted rate, and those rooms are going fast. If the reservation dates you need are filled, check back frequently—many Annual Meeting attendees cancel or change their hotel reservations as the meeting draws near.

These sessions will deliver targeted, timely information and practical skills on topics like precision medicine, grant-writing, getting published, advocating for health policy, designing and conducting randomized behavioral clinical trials, reducing health inequities, and designing digital health interventions.
