2021 SPH Network Conference

The Social Personality Health Network (SPHN) is excited to present the 13th Annual SPSP Health Preconference, dedicated to examining the reciprocal relationship between social/personality psychology and health. Topics for the virtual preconference this year will include: mechanisms linking racism and health, health communication and misinformation, and social norms and health behavior interventions, as well as other exciting areas of research at the intersection of social/personality psychology and health. Registration to our preconference comes with the perk of a one-year membership in SPHN.

The schedule will feature two special panels focused on timely topics: Racism and Health (confirmed speakers Dr. Courtney Cogburn and Dr. Danielle Beatty Moody, with more to come), and Health Communication and Misinformation (confirmed speaker Dr. Andy Tan, with more to come).

Each panelist will pre-record a 15-20-minute presentation that will be available for online viewing one-week in advance of the preconference. Then, on the day of the preconference, panel participants will engage in a live, moderated Q & A session, to which attendees can submit questions in advance and in real-time.

The schedule will also include a virtual poster session, attendee-submitted flash talks, two invited talks from Dr. Allecia Reid and Dr. Alia Crum (the 2020 Early Career Award winner), and virtual break-out sessions around both professional development topics and specific content areas in social/personality and health. We can't wait to "see" you at #SPHN2021!
