Daytona Beach, FL – Several Bethune-Cookman University (B-CU) student researchers will present their abstracts at the upcoming 39th Annual Meeting and Scientific Sessions of the Society of Behavioral Medicine.

The event will take place from April 11 through April 14 at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside in New Orleans. The Society of Behavioral Medicine (SBM) is a multidisciplinary organization made up of clinicians, educators, and scientists. Members of the organization strive to study the relationship between behavior, biology, and the environment and apply their findings to improve health across all individuals, families, communities, and populations.

Research conducted by Erica Anderson, Warren Feaster, and Courtney Peterson was overseen by professor and associate dean for research in the Petrock College of Health Sciences, Dr. Bridgett Rahim-Williams. Their research focuses on chronic pain management, physical activity, health disparities, and women’s health.

“B-CU continues to train minority health disparities researchers whose work is being recognized nationally and internationally,” said Dr. Bridgett Rahim-Williams.

The following abstracts will also be published in SBM’s annual meeting program booklet:

  • “The Social Construction and Language of Pain Among Women Managing Knee Osteoarthritis Pain,” (Erica Anderson)
  • “BMI, Self-efficacy, and Physical Performance as Risk factors for Pain Among Individuals with Knee Osteoarthritis (OA),” (Warren Feaster)
  • “Examining Perceptions of Knee Joint Replacement and Physical Activity Among Women with Knee Osteoarthritis (OA): DAPPA STUDY” (Courtney Peters)
