ABAI Health, Sport & Fitness SIG

Welcome!

The mission of the ABAI Health, Sports, & Fitness Special Interest Group (HSF SIG) is to support research and application of behavior analytic methods, practices, and principles to human challenges in health, sports, and fitness (HSF). With this website, we hope to create a community of active collaboration between SIG members, as well as disseminate behavior analytic information related to health, sports, and fitness.  

We are working on expanding the SIG offerings and strengthening opportunities for our members. If you have any ideas or want to be involved with the SIG, have any resources, events, or job openings you would like us to post, or if you’re interested in writing an interest piece for the HSF SIG Blog, please email us at hsf.abai@gmail.com.
