SPR 18th Annual Meeting "Cells to Society: Prevention at All Levels"
June 1 - 4, 2010
Grand Hyatt Denver
Denver, Colorado

Join your colleagues for the most important prevention science conference of the year! The Society for Prevention Research (SPR) 18th Annual Meeting will take place in Denver, CO at the Grand Hyatt Denver, June 1 – 4, 2010.

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 700 researchers, policy-makers and practitioners from the U.S. and abroad at the premiere meeting for prevention science!
