DoubleTree by Hilton Brighton Metropole
Brighton, UK



*Deadline for SBSM Room Rate is March 4th, 2024.

Theme: Contextual and environmental factors have a significant influence on biopsychosocial health and well-being across the lifespan. The Society for Biopsychosocial Science and Medicine (APS) has been dedicated to understanding and addressing such contextual and environmental factors since it was founded in 1942. At its 81st Annual Meeting in 2024, SBSM will emphasize thematic programming that highlights the diverse contexts and environments in which health and well-being are shaped, as well as contextually- and environmentally-informed mechanistic and intervention approaches.

Among some of the contextual factors to be thematically featured in meeting programming are (a) structural and systemic determinants of health; (b) historical context and health; (c) community-oriented approaches to research; (d) multilevel and lifespan socioeconomic conditions; (e) social relationships and networks; (f) physical and built environment determinants of biopsychosocial health; (g) climate and natural environmental contexts; and (h) medical illness, healthcare system, and clinical provider contextual influences on health.

Programming will also highlight work on processes, pathways, and moderators of contextual and environmental influences on biopsychosocial health. The 2024 Annual Meeting will also feature clinically- and policy-relevant science on contextually- and mechanistically-informed solutions and multilevel intervention approaches to promote biopsychosocial health.
