Topics covered in our meetings include (but are not limited to) the following: growth and development; nutrition; genetics; immunology and infectious diseases; mental health; chronic disease; social determinants of health; reproductive health; skeletal biology and paleopathology; stress; adaptation and evolution; methods, teaching, and ethics. Each year we also feature a Plenary Session and Pearl Memorial Lecturer, centerpieces of our meeting.

The American Journal of Human Biology, the official journal of HBA, publishes abstracts and the program of each HBA annual meeting.

Abstract Submission Process

All abstracts must be submitted online, as part of the pre-registration process, by October 17, 2022.

Abstracts can be submitted in both English and Spanish.

Please contact the HBA Program Committee Chair Gillian Ice (hbaprogram@ohio.edu) for assistance with abstract or proposal preparation or on-line abstract submission difficulties.

Each abstract submitted for the contributed presentations will be reviewed independently by at least two members of the 2022 HBA Program Committee regarding whether to accept/decline and whether to assign the abstract to a poster or podium session. Abstract acceptance is not based on membership status, prior participation, preferences for presentation mode, area of emphasis, or request for consideration for the special session. If accepted, an abstract will be published in the American Journal of Human Biology.

We anticipate sending the review decision to the first author via email by January 4, 2023.

Participants may opt to switch between virtual and in person presentations through January 31, 2023.
