The 10th Matilda White Riley Behavioral and Social Sciences Honors
Tuesday, April 25, 2017 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (EDT)
The NIH Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR) invites you to attend the 10th Matilda White Riley Behavioral and Social Sciences Honors on Tuesday, April 25, 2017 from 9:00 am to 12 noon at the NIH main campus in Bethesda, MD.
Each year, OBSSR honors the continuing influence of Dr. Matilda White Riley in the behavioral and social sciences across and beyond the NIH. OBSSR recently turned the celebration into the Real Life, Labs, Research. (Full Agenda).
Please be sure to register for this exciting event that will recognize the winners of OBSSR’s Early Stage Investigators (ESI) Paper Competition, who will present their research during the ESI Honors panel discussion, and will feature a lecture by a distinguished scholar whose research has contributed to behavioral and social scientific knowledge and/or the application of such knowledge that is relevant to the mission of the NIH. The scholar’s research reflects Dr. Matilda White Riley’s commitment to research characterized by values such as:
- Strong linkages among theory, methods, and research topics/goals
- Recognition of complexity of and dynamic interplay among processes at multiple levels of explanation
- Encouragement of research on behavioral and social factors in physical health and of the application of such knowledge in clinical practice and health policy
- Advocacy of a life-course perspective, both at the level of individuals and of societies
- Emphasis on the potential for improving the lives of people and society
- Conceptual expansion of “health” beyond biological outcomes to include “effective functioning,” such as cognitive, affective and social functioning, and quality of life; and wellbeing
