EWB Research Summit 2024, Philidelphia PA
Tuesday, March 12, 2024,
Philidelphia Marriot Downtown Hotel
The EWB Research Summit will bring together a cross-disciplinary group of researchers to discuss their ongoing and developing activities associated with advancing the science of emotional well-being in the context of behavioral medicine. Information about critical issues in advancing an EWB research agenda can be found in the 2022 article by Park and colleagues, along with the related commentaries and response in the recent issue of Affective Science. Information about the focus of the EMOT-ECON network can be found in the 2023 article by Pisu et al.
The EWB Research Summit is designed as a professional learning opportunity and is particularly appropriate for those who are interested in research aligned with mechanisms underlying mind-body interventions and measurement of EWB across the life course, and/or EWB in the context of patients who experience financial hardship due to their disease.
The main structure involves the opportunity to solicit feedback on planned or ongoing work through a Data Blitz format. This format focuses on early-stage work, giving the presenter a brief opportunity (10 min) to share “big ideas” along with questions/challenges, which is then followed by open group discussion and feedback (20 min).
The EWB Summit will be held on Tuesday March 12, 2024, the day prior to the Society of Behavioral Medicine (SBM) Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, PA, from 2:00pm-7:00pm. Refreshments will be provided. SBM does not endorse or sanction this function, and it is not an official event of the SBM.
Attendance at the Summit is limited to 40 participants. Selected participants will be those who are actively developing or conducting research relevant to emotional well-being, and particularly those who (1) identify as early career scholars and (2) are engaged in work aligned with the aims of the M3EWB and EMOT-ECON networks.
We strongly encourage you to apply early to take advantage of this opportunity to collaboratively advance the science of emotional well-being in the context of behavioral medicine. Limited stipend funds will be available to support selected attendees.
The abstract question:
- Description of how your work aligns with EWB broadly and will advance the science of emotional well-being in the context of behavioral medicine.
- Include alignment with mechanisms underlying mind-body interventions and measurement of EWB across the life course or EWB in the context of patients who experience financial hardship due to their disease
