Sessions on „Social Networks and Health Inequalities“, XXXVI Sunbelt Conference of the International Network for Social Network Analysis (INSA), 05.- 20. April 2016, Newport Beach (USA)

These sessions intend to focus on interdisciplinary approaches adressing social network influences on health behaviors. We are particularly interested in theoretical and empirical work that connects life course and network dynamics. 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.
