Members of the AEI team presented on several of our projects at the 2010 National Convention of the American Public Health Association, Denver, CO. From a full session on Expedited Partner Treatment, aka PartnerCare, to understanding how faith leaders address suicide in their organizations, through understanding prescription medication misuse, to examining how social virtual reality may be used to support SBIRT training, the presentations range across many fields and come at these different health problems from a variety of perspectives: theoretical frameworks, qualitative research, descriptive research, all with a focus on understanding and changing behavior. We have more information and the presentations themselves available on the site.

We target health related issues ranging from STD and conflict prevention among teens and tweens, to FASD, ADHD, and other disorder education for lay care providers, to disease prevention and medical assessment training for healthcare providers. We particularly focus on the social aspects of health care: why do people do the things they do and how can we help them live healthier, happier, or more productive lives?
