Given the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, UKSBM has once again decided to host a virtual Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) .
The ASM will take place over two half days (Wednesday 30 and Thursday 31 March 2022), and will include keynote speakers, parallel sessions, research awards, special interest group meetings, early-career and mid-career researcher sessions, the Society’s Annual General Meeting, and chances to network and socialise.
We would like to invite all colleagues interested in the field of behavioural medicine to participate in this two-day meeting. Our conference theme is simply behavioural medicine in all its forms and we welcome the submission of abstracts reflecting the broad focus of contemporary research in behavioural medicine.
