The purpose of the Research Snapshot Sessions is to present a ‘data blitz’ in which researchers introduce  unique and cutting-edge findings. The goal is to inspire discussion and provide an opportunity for conference participants to get a sense of the broad, rich range of questions and approaches that are being employed to understand the relation between social processes and health.
