by National Research Council, Commission on Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education, Cognitive, and Sensory Sciences Board on Behavioral, Committee on Future Directions for Behavioral and Social Sciences Research at the National Institute
Edited by Carol D. Ryff, Burton H. Singer
New Horizons in Health discusses how the National Institutes of Health (NIH) can integrate research in the social, behavioral, and biomedical sciences to better understand the causes of disease as well as interventions that promote health. It outlines a set of research priorities for consideration by the Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR), with particular attention to research that can support and complement the work of the National Institutes of Health. By addressing the range of interactions among social settings, behavioral patterns, and important health concerns, it highlights areas of scientific opportunity where significant investment is most likely to improve national"and global"health outcomes. These opportunities will apply the knowledge and methods of the behavioral and social sciences to contemporary health needs, and give attention to the chief health concerns of the general public.
