FABBS Member Scientific Societies Describe Policy-Relevant Contributions
May 29, 2013
by Paula Skedsvold
FABBS has launched a project to highlight how the sciences of mind, brain, and behavior are contributing to the health and well-being of individuals, society, and the nation. Our goal is to show that investments in our sciences are producing knowledge that saves lives; improves health, education, business operations, and quality of life; increases safety; improves decision making; spurs innovation; and cuts costs.
To be sure, it can be challenging to take a body of research and capture the contributions in a form that is easily accessible to public audiences. However, a number of FABBS member scientific societies rose to the challenge and prepared excellent examples. We will continue to collect highlights showing the contributions of our sciences and expand our database. Visit the webpage periodically for updates.
