Social Networks & Health

DUPRI provides some support for the annual Social Networks & Health Workshop (SN&H) (NICHD R25HD079352). SN&H is an annual workshop, held at Duke University and run through the Duke Networks Analysis Center, that provides comprehensive training in network methods from leading scholars around the country.

SN&H covers topics in social network analysis related to studying health behaviors, including:

  • Data collection
  • Ego network analysis
  • Diffusion and peer influence
  • Communities in networks
  • Respondent-driven sampling
  • Network visualizations
  • Statistical Models for networks (ERGM, AMEN, SOAM)
  • Agent-based modeling

Now in its 7th year, the SN&H Workshop has built a significant library of training videos, presentation slides, and sample code. The offerings include an introductory Foundations track, designed for those just starting in network analysis, and an Advanced Methods track expanding our set of cutting-edge methods discussions.
