Social media in health research – insights of an online child nutrition peer education program.

"In this seminar I will present some explorative work where I use web and social media analytics (data and tools typically used in digital marketing) to gain insights into a child nutrition program. ‘PICNIC’ uses peer education, website and social media to disseminate evidence-based information and support parents in child nutrition and feeding issues. The study is a collaborative project with researchers at the University of Newcastle, Australia, and has opened my eyes to the great opportunities—but also challenges—of social media and the data collected through these platforms, to be used for health research purposes. What is it; how can it be used in research; what challenges are there?”

What are the Health Informatics Conversations?

HI Conversations - a seminar series about Health Informatics

The conversations are about research-oriented health informatics topics, i.e. – presenting a published article, your research area, a relevant theory or a method etc.  

The Health Informatics Conversations will be recurring the last Thursday (except for June and December) every month at 12.00 via Zoom and last for one hour. This hour includes 20 minutes of presentation and leaves the rest of the time for discussions, all in English.

If you are a PhD-student – this is a credit-bearing activity, as long as the topic is relevant for your research.
