CU Boulder Earns Abstract of Distinction Award at 32nd Annual SPR Meeting

A roundtable symposium chaired by Pamela Buckley, associate research professor and fellow at the Institute of Behavioral Science (IBS), has earned the 2024 Society for Prevention Research (SPR) Abstract of Distinction Award. The presentation, titled “How Can Clearinghouses Help the Field Re-Envision, Re-Tool and Improve upon the Measurement Tools, Methodologies, and Dissemination Processes of Evidence-Based Preventive Interventions to Promote Equitable Health for Children, Families and Communities?” will feature Buckley as well as Christine Steeger, Karl Hill, and Blueprints for Healthy Youth Development board members Abby Fagan, Frances Gardner and Velma McBride Murry.   

The Annual SPR Meeting is the premiere conference for prevention science professionals. This is the eighth year the SPR has conferred abstracts of distinction, which “highlight abstracts and topics that are particularly noteworthy and are likely to generate excitement and attendance at the presentations.” This is also the second time the Blueprints team has earned this distinction. The team won the Abstract of Distinction back in 2022 for a symposium organized by Karl Hill, titled “Common Flaws in Designing and Analyzing Preventive Interventions and How to Avoid Them“.

The SPR meeting will be held next week, May 28-31, on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. In addition to the roundtable, several IBS fellows and faculty are also presenting. Below is a list of all presentations from CU Boulder:
