The event – NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH: Improving the Nation’s Health through Behavioral and Social Sciences Research – will feature posters of NIH-funded research.  Members of Congress, their staff, the biomedical, the behavioral and social science research community, and the public will be invited.

Research highlighted will address one or more of these themes:

  • Interventions to promote health and prevent illness and disease;
  • Treatments for illness and disability;
