Society for Prevention Research: 16th Annual Meeting

The 16th Annual Meeting of the Society for Prevention Research (SPR) will be held in San Francisco, CA from May 28-30, 2008. The theme for the 2008 conference is "Context and Prevention Science." While most agree that “context matters," relatively little research in prevention science has been conducted that aids understanding of the ways in which context matters in designing interventions and understanding intervention impact. In addition, as the science moves forward to better understand gene and environment interactions in development, it is clear that many questions about environment remain – questions of definition, processes, intervention targets, measurement and a myriad of methodological challenges. Registration details, call for papers and full program are available at the conference website.
