NIH SOBC Working Group

Ongoing

Background

RLA provided meeting planning and logistics support for a large trans-National Institutes of Health (NIH) Science of Behavior Change (SOBC) meeting in June 2009. In 2010, the SOBC Working Group, comprised of representatives from multiple NIH Institutes and Centers, asked RLA to help coordinate the group’s ongoing efforts to support research leading toward a unified science of behavior change over the course of a 5-year program.

How We Helped

RLA supports SOBC by facilitating communication, distilling the Working Group’s efforts into useful written summaries, and working closely with key stakeholders to plan and execute multiple large-scale meetings. RLA helps hardworking NIH staff move science forward by coordinating multiple efforts, facilitating communication, and providing professional writing services.
