2021 Convention Program

TheHealthPsychologistNews from the SfHP

APA Virtual Convention

The Society for Health Psychology is very excited about the upcoming APA convention. The program prepared by 2021 Chair Tyler Branagan will offer content which spans health psychology, as well as a focus on health psychology’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The convention will be entirely virtual this year – with the benefit of being able watch content after the scheduled convention dates – with greatly reduced registration rates!

Featured SfHP sessions include: “The Role of Psychologists in the Care and Recovery of Critically Ill COVID-19 Patients,” “Applying Evidence-based Assessment and Intervention Strategies in Primary Care,” and “International Collaborations in Health Psychology: Research Findings, Insights, and Funding.”

Register for the 2021 APA convention today and enjoy learning from experts in Health Psychology! See https://convention.apa.org/ for complete registration and programming details.
