“Challenges and Opportunities in Social Networking Research: Insights from the NETworks for Weight Loss Study"

 Courtney M. Monroe is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health Promotion, Education, and Behavior in the Arnold School of Public Health. Her research focuses on how to best harness technology for physical activity promotion and weight control, with a specific emphasis on better understanding social networks and social support for these purposes. She most recently carried out the NETworks (nutrition, exercise, and technology) for weight loss randomized controlled trial in collaboration with other TecHealth researchers, gathering unique insights that will help inform the broader challenges and opportunities in social networking research.
