The SPR 2022 Annual Meeting will be held in person at the Hyatt Regency Seattle, Seattle, WA. There will be a live streaming component which will include the three plenary sessions and the two presidential addresses. There will not be opportunities to present virtually. We recommend you submit an abstract, and if your abstract is accepted (notifications will go out March 2022), you can then decide if you will travel and present in person.


We at the Society for Prevention Research acknowledge that our annual conference is being held on Indigenous land. These ancestral homelands have been the traditional territories of the Duwamish, Suquamish, Snoqualmie, and Puyallup, as well as the tribes of the Muckleshoot, Tulalip, other Coast Salish peoples, and their descendants since time immemorial and into the present day. We are grateful to have the opportunity to meet here as guests on these lands with the Coast Salish and Native people who call this home. This land acknowledgement is one small act in the ongoing process of working to be in good relationship with the land and the people of the land.

About the SPR Annual Meeting

Conference Venue

Mark your calendars to attend the most important prevention science conference–the Society for Prevention Research (SPR) 30th Annual Meeting held in person May 31 – June 3, 2022. This year’s theme is “Realizing the Power of Prevention Through Equitable Dissemination & Implementation Science.”

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.
