The Health Equity and Media Lab

We are an interdisciplinary research lab housed in the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing and led by Dr. Robin Stevens, MPH, PhD. We tap into the vast wealth of data that social media sites provide to glean insights into lived experiences and health behaviors. The lessons we learn from users' posts, shares, and networks are reflected in the interventions we design and implement.
