The American Journal of Health Promotion hosted this webinar in September on “The Power of Peers”.

Defining a “culture of health” for health promotion professionals often starts with physical supports like food choices or fitness opportunities.  But for those who research organizational change, social supports and group relationships are what ultimately shapes a culture.  In this Webinar we review this month’s contribution to The Art of Health Promotion (TAHP) from Laura Linnan and Edwin Fisher from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC).  They offer an enlightening update on the evidence concerning the effectiveness of peer support and the great opportunities worksites have for tapping the power of peers.
