ARPH Conference 2024

Building bridges for health

March 25 & 26, 2024 - Maastricht


Dear colleagues

We can’t wait to meet all of you in Maastricht at the Van der Valk hotel for the 13th annual ARPH conference: Building bridges for health, on March 25th and 26st 2024. 

Under the theme “Building bridges for health”, the Scientific Programme Committee of ARPH is aiming for a broad programme of lectures, workshops, posters and networking initiatives concerning the latest developments in research about psychosocial approaches to health and illness. 

This year, we particularly want to highlight the facet of building bridges within health care and research. Indeed, in many cases researchers and/or clinicians aim to strengthen the links between research and clinic, reduce disparities in health care, or translate findings from the lab to real-life situations. In each of these situations, we build in our own way bridges to advance knowledge and practice concerning health and illness.

We look forward to meeting you in Maastricht!
