Recorded November 4, 2013.

This presentation will focus on personal networks and their potential influences on behavioral risk factors for chronic disease among Latinos. Although the role of social networks in the propagation of health behaviors is a burgeoning area of research, there has been limited focus on specific subgroups that are at elevated risk for chronic disease such as adult Latinos. As a result, less is known about the relationship between social networks and health behaviors among Latinos whose network features and behavioral patterns differ from non-Hispanic Whites.
