Symposia from SJDM/SMDM online

December 15th, 2008 by Alan Schwartz

The 2008 annual meetings of the Society for Judgment and Decision Making (SJDM) and the Society for Medical Decision Making (SMDM) included a “symposium exchange”. A symposium by SJDM members was presented at SMDM 2008 (Pennsylvania, PA) and a symposium by SMDM members was presented at SJDM 2008 (Chicago, IL). At least one of the talks reported on a study of behavioral economics for weight loss that has recently received considerable media attention.

Videorecordings of the symposia are now available. You can find links at http://www.sjdm.org/content/video-recordings-2008-sjdmsmdm-symposia
