Why is Behavior Change So Hard? Successes and Failures from the Field

October 16, 2019
9:30am - 12:30pm
Harborview 2/3
In recent years, obesity, diabetes, and opioid abuse have become national epidemics as people struggle to survive a toxic food environment, chronic pain, easy access to addictive prescription drugs, and sedentary lifestyles. Behavioral medicine scientists have spent decades studying the factors that predict healthy and unhealthy choices and this research has produced numerous evidence-based interventions. Unfortunately, few of these interventions have undergone wide scale implementation. The digital health industry has produced new opportunities to implement behavioral medicine interventions but the devil is in the details. This session will feature leaders in the field of behavioral medicine who will share failures and successes in designing, adapting, and implementing behavior change programs using digital technology across a variety of clinical and community settings.
