About the SPR Annual Meeting

Mark your calendars to attend the most important prevention science conference–the Society for Prevention Research (SPR) 29th Annual Meeting that will be held virtually June 2-4, 2021. This year’s theme is “Addressing Racism and Disparities when Considering Biology and Context.”

The Society for Prevention Research envisions a wellness-oriented society in which evidenced-based programs and policies are continuously applied to improve the health and well-being of its citizens, fostering positive human development and citizens who lead productive lives, in caring relationships with others.

The SPR Annual Meeting provides a unique opportunity to advance this vision by providing a centrally integrated forum for the exchange of new concepts, methods, and results from prevention research and related public health fields; and by providing a forum for the communication between scientists, public policy leaders and practitioners concerning the implementation of evidence-based preventive interventions in all areas of public health.
