Fourteenth International Conference on Health, Wellness & Society
October 03 - 04, 2024
Malmö University, Niagara
Welcome to the micro-site for the Fourteenth International Conference on Health, Wellness, & Society
Founded in 2011, the Health, Wellness, & Society Research Network is brought together by a common concern in the fields of human health and wellness, and in particular their social interconnections and implications. We seek to build an epistemic community where we can make linkages across disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries. As a Research Network, we are defined by our scope and concerns and motivated to build strategies for action framed by our shared themes and tensions.
The Fourteenth International Conference on Health, Wellness, & Society calls for research addressing the following annual themes and special focus:
2024 Special Focus—Health for Democracy, Democracy for Health
Theme 1: The Physiology, Kinesiology, and Psychology of Wellness in its Social Context
Theme 2: Interdisciplinary Health Sciences
Theme 3: Public Health Policies and Practices
Theme 4: Health Promotion and Education
We are interested in the following lines of investigation:
On the dimensions of wellness in body and mind.
On the systematic study of human health.
On community responsibilities to foster wellness and proactive health policies and practices.
On informal and formal health education.
