APS 2020 Virtual Meeting

The American Psychosomatic Society is pleased to announce a 2020 Virtual Meeting with the theme Pursuing Health Equity in the Context of COVID-19: The Essential Role of Psychosomatic Science, to be held on December 3 and 4.

The global pandemic and efforts to stem its transmission and impact serve to highlight the importance of psychosomatic science in contemporary health and healthcare. The virus has also exacerbated racial/ethnic and socioeconomic disparities in exposure, healthcare access and quality, and pre-existing disease vulnerabilities. With its focus on mechanisms, the American Psychosomatic Society has the potential to make significant contributions towards the remediation of this global health crisis as well as address longstanding disparities in health.
