2024 Scientific Meeting - Call for Abstracts

"Health Communication, (Mis-)Information, and Behavior:
Leveraging Technology for Behavioral Interventions and Health Behavior Research"

AUTHORS NOTIFIED: December 12, 2023

Please join us for an exciting meeting that will explore the latest research and developments in health communication, interventions, misinformation, and health behavior research, particularly regarding digital technologies. Topics will include the impact of social media and misinformation on health behaviors, designing effective health communication campaigns, strategies for addressing misinformation, and evaluating the effectiveness of health communication and behavior change programs. Discussions will foster collaboration among researchers to promote evidence-based solutions for improving public health.

There is only one call for abstracts this year;
there will not be a separate "late breaker" call for submissions.

General Guidelines for Abstracts

We particularly encourage submissions that are related to the meeting theme. Abstracts related to other health behavior topics are also welcome for submission. In addition to research-based abstracts, this year we invite abstracts describing novel research protocols for proposed or on-going health behavior research studies. All abstract submissions are limited to 300 words.


You may submit no more than 3 abstracts as presenting author. If you submit more than 3 abstracts as presenting author, you will be asked to select abstracts for withdrawal. Abstracts are limited to 15 co-authors. If your abstract is accepted for presentation, it is expected that you and/or a co-author will register for the conference and be present for your session. All presenters/abstract authors will be responsible for their conference-related expenses (e.g., meeting registration and hotel).

We welcome submissions from members and non-members. We encourage submissions from first-time attendees.

Presentation Format

All abstracts will be considered for poster presentation by default.

During the submission process, you will be asked if you would like your abstract to be considered for a 5-minute "lightning" talk. A select number of abstract submissions that receive the highest reviewer ratings (based on quantitative scores and indication by reviewers that they would be a good fit for the format), will be selected. Your indication of interest in being considered for a lightning talk will not affect the overall likelihood of your abstract's acceptance.

No Show Policy

Cancellations for accepted abstract presentations must be communicated directly to the AAHB Research Review Chair. Cancellations must be made prior to the first day of the Meeting.


Direct any questions about abstract submissions to Alyssa Robillard, PhD, 2024 Research Review Chair.
