ABSTRACT SUBMISSION DEADLINE: September 29, 2017 at 11:59 P.M. PST

The American Academy of Health Behavior invites you to submit your abstracts to be considered for research poster presentations at the annual meeting from March 4-7, 2018 in Portland, Oregon. This year's meeting theme, An Equity Approach to Health Behavior Innovations, recognizes the influence of social and structural contexts on health and health behavior. To achieve health equity is to attain the highest level of health for all people. Examples of broad topics related to this year's theme include:

  • A focus on underserved and socially disadvantaged populations
  • Social determinants of health
  • Tracking, measuring, and documenting health inequities
  • Etiology and root causes of inequities
  • Culturally relevant health promotion and intervention strategies
  • Multi-stakeholder approaches to eliminating health inequities
  • Access to health resources and healthcare

We particularly encourage submissions that are related to the meeting theme. Abstracts related to other health behavior topics are also welcome for submission. Preference will be given to quantitative and qualitative research-based abstracts that report complete results.

Both members and non-members are encouraged to submit abstracts for the meeting. Authors will be notified of the status of their submission(s) by November 15, 2017.
