Seminar by Professor Thomas Valente, a visiting professor at EHESP and Professor of Preventive Medicine, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California.

Building on his extensive research experience, Professor Valente will present the theoretical and practical aspects of the science of analysis and intervention on social networks. Using examples from community health programs and schools initiatives, he will demonstrate how these networks can be used to promote changes in health behaviour, improve the performance and quality of inter-organizational collaborations and facilitate the dissemination of innovative practices.
