Save the date for the 2024 TAM Colloquium on Thursday, January 11th from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. CST.
This meeting will be a virtual event held over Zoom. The meeting will consist of two main time segments. (1) Research updates in the field: The past year has seen a re-evaluation of the narrative around social media and youth mental health. We will share updates on these advances in the field, and existing research gaps. Attendees will have the chance to engage in discussions following presentations and consider whether they want to be part of addressing the research gaps. (2) A youth-focused segment: Attendees will learn about ways to involve youth in research through programs, advisory boards, and internships. This segment will also include our popular youth panel to hear their perspectives on social media and youth mental well-being.
We are excited to share TAM’s 2024 funding initiative which is centered on promoting new research on adolescent and mental wellness and technology use. Through this initiative, we hope to encourage investigators to utilize our TAM Data Consortium available data and present their project findings at a national meeting in 2024 or 2025. These awards will be $1,000 per person and up to $4,000 in total depending on the number of collaborators.
Here’s how to enter to win:
- Gather a group of up to 4 investigators to collaborate on this project
- Submit a letter of intent to the TAM Program by January 3
- Attend the virtual TAM Colloquium.
