Welcome to the NetHealth Study!

Want to be part of an exciting 2-year study of social networks and health conducted by professors at the University of Notre Dame?  We are now recruiting more students into the NetHealth Study.  If eligible you will receive an email or you can click below to complete the online registration form.

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) are very interested in knowing to what extent healthy behaviors can be promoted through social networks. The NetHealth Study funded by these governmental agencies will address this issue by using smartphones to gather information on people’s social networks and Fitbit activity trackers to gather information on people’s physical activity and sleep patterns. Five hundred incoming Notre Dame first year students are currently enrolled in the study and an additional 400 students are now being recruited.
