8th CSBS Annual Research Conference
Dear CSBS Faculty and Students
As you may know, the College of Social & Behavioral Sciences has held a research and teaching conference for the last seven years. This year we continued in that tradition, and co-sponsored our conference with the College of Health Sciences & Human Services and PACE. Last spring an ad hoc committee in the College approved of this collaboration and this year’s theme. We welcomed submissions from students, faculty, and community members in the form of research posters, research papers, panels or roundtables
The 2014 University of Texas-Pan American College of Social & Behavioral Sciences Research and Teaching Symposium in Edinburg, Texas featured cutting edge research on the topic of health, in its broadest sense, through panel sessions, undergraduate and graduate student research posters, and workshops. We sought poster, paper, panel, and roundtable proposals that were informative and relevant, informed by theory and research, encouraged opportunities for learner engagement, and/or demonstrated application to the work of participants. Undergraduate and graduate students were invited to submit poster, paper, panel, and/or roundtable proposals. Faculty and students from UTPA and other institutions of higher education, as well as community members, were invited to submit paper, panel, and/or roundtable proposals. Proposals and presentations were in English or Spanish.

CFP: Health and Health Policy in the Social Sciences
As higher education in the south Texas region focuses its attention to building a medical school, recognizing the complex relationship between globalization, local development and health, this symposium called for research from many disciplinary and methodological perspectives. The goal was to highlight the important contribution that can be made by the social sciences to this field, and also the practical and methodological challenges implicit in the study of health and wellness.
Research topics included, but were not limited to, cultural and health and wellness traditions and practices, and policy implications for health outcomes, issues related to health literacy, health disparities and public health, and building community knowledge of health and wellness.
