SIREN 2025 National Research Meeting: Advancing the Science of Social Care

SIREN is excited to announce that we will host our third national research conference, “Advancing the Science of Social Care”, which will take place in San Diego, California on February 2-4, 2025

The SIREN 2025 National Research Meeting will bring together social care researchers, practitioners, community members, advocates, and policymakers to foster shared learning about the healthcare sector’s investments in social care programs and policies. The conference’s primary goals are to: 

  1. Share and examine recent research on social and medical care integration and alignment; 
  2. Identify and prioritize filling persistent research gaps in this field; and
  3. Foster new collaborations to deepen effectiveness and implementation research, community-engaged research, and the translation of research to practice

See below for our open Call for Abstracts and more information about the National Research Meeting.

This conference is made possible through the foundational support of Kaiser Permanente. A list of co-sponsors is included below. If you are interested in sponsoring the SIREN National Research Meeting, please contact us at

Call for Abstracts

We invite you to submit your social care research to the National Research Meeting! Abstracts for posters, podium presentations, and workshops should focus on the implementation or effectiveness of healthcare policies / practices related to collecting data about social conditions and/or interventions informed by data about social conditions. These healthcare policies and practices may be targeted at the patient, system, or community level. We are particularly interested in research that examines equity-related outcomes.
