Behavioral Medicine meets Aging and Geroscience Research—now a virtual conference!
All ISBM members (especially students!) are invited to this event. The Academy of Behavioral Medicine Research (ABMR) is hosting an exciting conference on malleable factors that shape the human healthspan, including the role of social stressors such as trauma, racism, and climate change, mechanisms of biological aging such as exposome, vagal tone, epigenetic clocks, telomeres, and mitochondria, and interventions such as exercise, hyperthermia, and mindfulness. Terrie Moffitt will discuss childhood influences on rate of biological aging, Kristine Yaffe will discuss brain aging, Richard Davidson will lead an experiential keynote on meditation, and we will have dialogues with Robin Carhart Harris, on psychedelic therapy and health, and science journalist James Nestor, author of bestseller Breath. We end with a talk on how to make our research have a higher public health impact—“Strategic research” (with Kelly Brownell).
These discussions will take place on Zoom from October 8th - 11th, with opportunities to participate through zoom Q&A sessions. Check our
