The expectation that we take personal responsibility for our health has become a truism. So why, when we often know what to do, is it still so hard to put this knowledge into practice? This conference will take a provocative look at the economic, behavioral and cultural factors which influence our health behaviors and decisions and offer examples that we can put to use to improve our own health and the health of our communities.

Who should attend:
Anyone interested in gaining a better understanding of the forces that shape health behavior and decision-making should attend. Health care practioners and public policymakers, systems leaders, payers and funders, health care educators and advocates and researchers should all find the speakers and panel
discussion informative and thought provoking.

This conference is free of charge but registration is required. Please register by April 9, 2010.

Dan Ariely book signing following the conference - if you would like to purchase a copy of Dan Ariely's book you can reserve a copy when registering.
