The Society for Prevention Research (SPR) was established in 1991 and has catalyzed the growth of the prevention science. The strength of SPR and its relevance to the transdisciplinary field of prevention science, national policy and practice has been new discoveries, new methods, and integration of research and knowledge from multiple fields. The cutting-edge research and scientific advancements discussed at the Annual Meeting support the achievements of the more than 800 members of SPR, and catalyze the improvement of the science of prevention across all aspects of physical and mental health, public health and social well-being.
