This new meeting will maintain the original mission of the SURF conference which was to “advance research collaborations among academic, military, and industry partners to improve health outcomes and readiness.” Most importantly, with this new expanded meeting format, everyone will be able to present and share research, practice, and policy knowledge; and connect not only with scholars and practitioners from the SAMHS, and academic institutions, but also with other public, government, and private organizations, small businesses, and industry partners.
