Social Networks and Health

Thomas W. Valente

Oxford University Press

This summary chapter reviews the models, methods, and applications that have been presented throughout the book. Network concepts have focused the research attention of many scientists and produced a rich body of research. In public health, virtually all chronic and infectious diseases are affected by networks and can profitably be studied using network tools. This summary chapter reiterates these points and provides some small empirical example which the reader can use to get started in this new, exciting and growing field. A glossary and long bibliography are provided.

Keywords:   network models, behavior change, public health
