The Whole is Greater than the Sum of Its Parts. That’s the perfect metaphor for the Society of Behavioral Medicine, a multidisciplinary, non-profit organization founded in 1978.

SBM provides the many disciplines represented with an interactive network for education and collaboration on common research, clinical and public policy concerns related to prevention, diagnosis and treatment, rehabilitation, and health.
