SBM’s 2018 Annual Meeting & Scientific Sessions will encourage attendees to venture outside of their academic and clinical comfort zones by connecting directly with industry partners, community organizations, government agencies, the media, and the general public. The meeting’s theme is “Extending Our Reach.” Meeting sessions will explain how to build partnerships within these diverse sectors. Plenary speakers will highlight the need for connections between researchers and private entities, community organizations, industry, mass media, and patients themselves. They’ll give examples of successful partnerships that improved public health, and attendees will leave with specific action steps for creating their own non-traditional relationships. Some speakers will focus specifically on partnerships involving policy-making, digital health, and culturally responsive health care.
