The Biobehavioral RIG is focused on advancing nursing knowledge related to the interactions between biology and behavior in order to improve the health of individuals, families, and communities. The purpose of the Biobehaviorial RIG is to serve the membership of SNRS by providing opportunities for collaboration, education, and peer support around issues associated with measurement and design of biobehavioral studies, obtaining research funding, and publications. We plan to provide the members of the RIG a forum for examining state-of-the- art methodologies and approaches as well as theories that will provide new directions in studying complex clinical problems.
