Meeting will discuss social networks and health research

Mar. 26, 2014, 2:59 PM

Join us for light breakfast and coffee as Eric Tesdahl, Ph.D., discusses social network analysis from 8:30 to 10 a.m. Friday, April 4. The event will be held at 2525 West End Ave. on the sixth floor.

Over the past decade, researchers have taken a keen interest in the ways that health outcomes and health behaviors are affected by social networks. Social network analysis has provided unique insights into topics such as obesity, smoking behavior and disease spread in populations. However, social network analysis as a way to conduct research can be daunting because of its unique terminology and key concepts.

“Social Networks and Health Research: A Primer” will provide attendees with an introduction to social network analysis with a goal of helping audience members become more informed and critical consumers of social network research.
