Location: Arlington, Virginia

The 10th Annual Conference will take place on December 4th-6th in Arlington, Virginia. The theme for this year’s conference is: A Decade of Progress and the Path Forward, to reflect on the accomplishments of and challenges to the field and to focus on opportunities ahead. To make large-scale gains in health at a population level, we must consider the application of scientific discoveries to diverse contexts and populations, the power of partnerships, the value of engagement, and the complex fit between evidence and evidence-based interventions and the diversity of community and clinical settings where health and health care is delivered. This conference intends to support collective understanding of the research agenda to incorporate these challenges into D&I research through a combination of plenaries, concurrent and poster sessions that will present research findings and identify the next set of research priorities, setting the field up for the next decade. The extended two-and-a-half-day conference will celebrate both the 10-year milestone of D&I, and all attendees in the field, working each day to improve the health of individuals and communities.

Conferences organizers will be accepting abstracts for individual oral presentations, panel presentations, and poster presentations. A select number of accepted posters may be invited to participate in a poster slam session as well. Priority will be given to abstracts that address the overall conference theme, fit well in one of the conference tracks, and present high-quality data to support abstract conclusions. Authors will be required to select a track for their abstract and must adhere to the format: Background, Methods, Findings, and Implications for D & I Research. The thematic tracks for this year’s conference are:

  • Behavioral Health
  • Big Data and Technology
  • Building the Future of D&I Research
  • Clinical Care Settings: Patient-level Interventions
  • Clinical Care Settings: System-level interventions
  • Global D&I
  • Health Policy and D&I
  • Models, Methods, and Measures
  • Prevention and Public Health
