Fellows in Focus

American Psychological Association (APA) Executive Branch Science Fellow Sarah Johnson, Ph.D.

Admittedly, before I went through the placement process to determine where I would spend my fellowship year, I didn't know much about OBSSR. Indeed, I didn't really know that much about NIH. I am a social psychologist by training, with a background in basic behavioral science-a field that has recently received special attention at the NIH with the birth of OppNet, the Basic Behavioral and Social Science Opportunity Network. I was excited and proud to join the Office that facilitates this initiative.

NIH Curriculum Supplement for Middle School: The Science of Healthy Behaviors
Designed for use in 7th and 8th grade classrooms, this curriculum supplement, sponsored by the NIH Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research, the Office of Science Education and the National Institute of Nursing Research, and developed by Biological Sciences Curriculum Study and SAIC, introduces students to the scientific study of behavior. Through inquiry-based activities, students investigate what behavior is and how it can be studied. They investigate how a variety of factors influence behaviors in complex ways and learn about the long- and short-term health consequences of behaviors.
