Congratulations to our 2017 Travel Award Winners for Outstanding SfHP Poster Presentations

The Society’s Program Reviewers and the Health Research Council help to ensure that we remain a recognized leader in health psychology by granting Travel Awards to the annual convention.  This year, the first authors of the top five poster submissions received travel awards of $500 each, in recognition of their excellent work.  Travel awards are supported in part by donations to the Society’s Tribute Fund.
