Was a Global Event!!!!!!!
The 2023 BSPA Online Conference on Behavioral Policy –
Fostering Collaboration – had attendees from all over the world zooming in to hear from a star-studded line up of speakers on how we can increase trust in science, decrease political polarization, and improve behavioral science interventions, topic-focused panel sessions, new publications and much more.
Also announced at the conference were the winners of the 2023 BSPA Best Publication Award – When peer comparison information harms physician well-being (Reiff, J.S., Zhang, J.C., Gallus, J., Dai, H., Pedley, N.M., Vangala, S., Leuchter, R.K., Goshgarian, G., Fox, C.R., Han, M. and Croymans, D.M., 2022.) and the winner of the 2023 BSPA New Investigator Award, Jackson G.

Our Spotlight workshops bring policymakers, practitioners and scientists together to brainstorm various research ‘best-practices’ and topic areas in a local setting. Topics such as energy, pre-K education, health and financial decision making can drive the agenda; alternatively, these working groups can coalesce around local government priorities in order to facilitate actionable insights being put into practice on a state or municipal level.
