These sessions intend to focus on the role of social networks for explaining health inequalities. We invite interdisciplinary approaches dealing with social network influences on health behaviors and outcomes. We encourage submissions that use different methods (quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods) and focus on health inequalities at different stages in the life course and/or different vulnerable groups. Theoretical and empirical work that connects life course and network dynamics is especially welcome.
