Last weekend, the DiSH Lab traveled to Louisville, KY to attend the American Psychosomatic Society’s 76th Annual Scientific Meeting. The American Psychosomatic Society (APS) aims to “advance and integrate the scientific study of biological, psychological, behavioral and social factors in health and disease,” which makes it a perfect fit with DiSH research. One of our grad students, Angela Incollingo Rodriguez, presented a talk on her dissertation study.
Here’s what she had to say: “APS is my favorite conference because it’s jam-packed with high-quality science conducted by the leaders of the field of Health Psychology from around the globe. It’s an event where you actually want to go to every single session, and it’s a great opportunity to meet and network with other researchers with similar interests to yours. This year, the theme was resilience, which is especially timely and relevant to the world we live in. And, as a member of the DiSH Lab, I of course was thrilled to see the program included an invited symposium on how health behaviors can be resilience factors!”
Dr. T attended the conference as well and presented a talk titled “Stress-induced eating: Helpful or Harmful?”
In between the awards talks, Dr. T also led the first-ever stretch break! It was quite successful.
