“The science of identities: measurement & methods
for translational health behavior research"
Health behavior research is fundamentally concerned with the actions of people within a given environment. Individuals and environments are highly complex and interactive, and health behavior science must evolve alongside our understanding of these complexities. This meeting will offer forward-thinking presentations and discussions on topics such as theoretical and conceptual frameworks, challenges and solutions to measuring the intersectionality of identities across the life course, and meaningful translation of research into sustainable long-term systemic and environmental changes within underserved populations. Discussions will be guided with a vision towards the development of strategies designed to contribute to health equity.

This year's meeting theme is The Science of Health Behaviors in Times of Crises. Between the COVID-19 pandemic, weather disasters across the globe, civil unrest triggered by the deaths of Black men (e.g., George Floyd), and the current Afghanistan crisis, the people, organizations and nations of this world are responding and behaving in ways unlike ever before, particularly in terms of health, economics, social relations, policy, and much more. It has never been more important to explore and understand the ways crises are felt at every level, and how they impact the health and well-being of individuals and communities.
