The UK Society for Behavioural Medicine's annual conference is taking place in Liverpool when leading national and international behavioural scientists, researchers and practitioners will come together to share their latest findings on health research.
A multidisciplinary team of staff from LJMU and the University of Liverpool make up the local organising committee for the event.
LJMU's Dr Helen Poole, and Chair of the committee said:
"On behalf of the committee we're really excited to be hosting the UKSBM Annual Meeting here in Liverpool this year and are pleased to announce our keynote speakers include: Sir Muir Gray CBE, Professor Trudie Chalder and Professor Zubin Austin. We're also delighted to have Chris Boardman MBE who will be 'in conversation' with LJMU's Professor Greg Whyte OBE about cycling, health and transport policy. We're developing an interesting and inspiring multidisciplinary programme that includes workshops, symposia, oral presentations and posters to appeal to professionals working in health and behavioural medicine at all levels (from individual to societal) and in all sectors. UKSBM are keen to foster development of the next generation of researchers and practitioners and there are some events at the meeting specifically targeted at Early Career Researchers (ECRs), as well a small number of bursaries for ECRs."
