2023 Social Networks & Health

We are pleased to announce that registration is open for Social Networks & Health 2023! 

The Social Networks and Health (SN&H) workshop, co-sponsored by DUPRI and DNAC, offers comprehensive training in network methods for health scholars. We are thrilled to announce that SN&H ’23 is back live and in-person this year from May 15-19 on Duke’s campus in Durham NC. Thanks to generous support from the NICHD, we offer this training at significantly subsidized cost; registration is $125 for the week and covers lunch & coffee each day.

***You can register here: https://events.duke.edu/SNH-2023 (limited to 35 people)***

This year’s offerings will focus on intermediate/advanced methods & applied network interventions. The workshop will have a general overview & methods review on Monday, but the rest of the week assumes basic familiarity with social network analysis, its application to health and health policy, and network data manipulation in R. As part of our focus on Applied Health Research, we will end each day with a live “stump the chumps” style session working through the design and analysis tasks for participants’ research projects. If you have a networks & health project in the works and would like to get advice on how best to design and carry out your study, here’s your chance to ask the experts!

In addition to presentations led by the Duke Network Analysis Center Team, we are joined this year by jimi adams (Colorado), Carter Butts (UCI),Scott Duxbury (UNC), Yami Molina (UIC), Peter Mucha (Dartmouth), Brea Perry (IU), David Schaefer (UCI), Tom Valente (USC), Ashton Verdery (PSU) and Nina Yamanis (American U) (and likely others…stay tuned!).

For those interested in basics & guided tutorials, please check out our catalog of free training videos on the DNAC training site. Now in its 7th year, the SN&H Workshop has built a significant library of training videos, presentation slides, and sample code all free and open to the public.

All presentations will be recorded and workshop materials made available at: https://sites.duke.edu/dnac/training/ after the workshop (we are also hoping to live-stream the workshop via zoom or similar, but can’t promise that yet.)

Looking forward to seeing everyone in May!
