Join us for the 15th UKSBM Annual Scientific Meeting

Thursday 16th January – Friday 17th January 2020 at Apex City of Bath Hotel

The Society invites all behavioural and public health researchers, clinicians, practitioners, epidemiologists, health and clinical psychologists, behavioural scientists, medical sociologists, health economists, nurses, pharmacists and all other colleagues interested in the field of behavioural medicine to participate in this two day meeting. This year we have decided not to limit the conference content to a specific theme but we are running our usual open call for contributions from all areas of behavioural medicine, and would particularly welcome the submission of abstracts and symposia that reflect the broad focus of contemporary research in Behavioural Medicine. These may include, but are not limited to;

  • Promoting health behaviour change: including physical activity, diet, weight loss, and alcohol, tobacco and other substance use
  • Applications of behaviour change theory
  • Evaluating complex interventions
  • Addressing health inequalities through Behavioural Medicine
  • Transport, pollution and health
  • Systems approaches to obesity and non-communicable diseases
  • The role of industry in health and health services
