About the SPR Annual Meeting
Mark your calendars to attend the most important prevention science conference–the Society for Prevention Research (SPR) 23rd Annual Meeting that will be held in Washington, DC, May 26-29, 2015, at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill. This year’s theme is “Integrating Prevention Science and Public Policy.”
The Society for Prevention Research envisions a wellness-oriented society in which evidenced-based programs and policies are continuously applied to improve the health and well-being of its citizens, fostering positive human development and citizens who lead productive lives, in caring relationships with others.
The SPR Annual Meeting provides a unique opportunity to advance this vision by providing a centrally integrated forum for the exchange of new concepts, methods, and results from prevention research and related public health fields; and by providing a forum for the communication between scientists, public policy leaders and practitioners concerning the implementation of evidence-based preventive interventions in all areas of public health.
Don’t miss this opportunity to meet and network with more than 800 U.S. and international researchers, policy-makers and practitioners at the premiere meeting for prevention science!
