A collective cause

Founded in 1978, the Society of Behavioral Medicine (SBM) is a non-profit organization that brings together multiple independent disciplines – from nursing, psychology, and medicine to public health – to provide new perspectives and progress on human behavior, health, and illness. Joining this unique body adds the value of your experience and expertise to the whole.

SBM is the leading forum for more than 2,400 behavioral and biomedical researchers and clinicians to study the interactions and relationships between behavioral, physiological, and biochemical states, and morbidity and mortality. The many disciplines we represent (and all our members) are part of an exclusive interactive network for education and collaboration on common research – as well as having access to dialogue and exchange on the latest clinical and public policy concerns regarding prevention, diagnosis and treatment, rehabilitation, and health promotion.
