SKYTOP, Pa. -- The primary goal of collaborative networking at the annual University of Pennsylvania/Carnegie Mellon University NIH P30 Roybal Behavioral Economics Retreat is nowhere more evident than at the event's poster session. There, teams of senior behavioral scientists and their trainees gather for high-energy discussions about the past year's research and findings. Above, in the poster gallery at Skytop Lodge and Conference Center, Salini Mohanty, DrPH, MPH, and Sarah Huf, MBBS, MRCS, talk about Mohanty's designs for smoking cessation programs for pregnant Medicaid patients. Mohanty is a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Family and Community Health at Penn's School of Nursing, and an LDI Associate Fellow. Huf is a Clinical Research Fellow at the Imperial College of London and a current Harkness Fellow at the Penn Medicine Center for Health Care Innovation.
