separator1SPR 2020 Annual Meeting Update:  Announcing Virtual Conference to be held July 21-23, 2020. Free Registration.

As the premiere prevention research conference, the SPR Annual Meeting provides a unique opportunity to advance the vision of SPR 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.

Though a virtual forum will not provide the same in-person experience, we hope that you are able to join us for part or all of our virtual meeting. The Board feels strongly that SPR must continue to fulfill its mission in the face of COVID-19, while also understanding that there are many competing priorities during these times that not everyone will be able to participate in all or even some of the sessions. We also believe that prevention research needs to be shared, the work of our early career scientists needs to be fostered, and prevention researchers, policy makers and practitioners need a place to share their work and come together as best as we can in these challenging times.

This year’s theme is “Why Context Matters: Towards a Place-Based Prevention Science.” Registration is free to all.

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.
