Subject: Peer influencers in health behaviors/ Smilar studies sought

> Dear Socnet members
> The current issue of The Lancet contains an article which may be of
> interest to list members. It describes a cluster randomised trial showing
> the effectiveness of using peer-influencers to prevent smoking in 12-13
> year olds in schools in England and Wales. Details of the paper are
> below - or you could read the media version, "Cool kids can help others
> avoid smoking"
> On a related topic, Justin Kirby (who occasionally posts on socnet) and I
> are interested in hearing about examples of the use of peer-influencer
> approaches, or anything similar, to bring about health-behavior change or
> achieve other public-health related goals. We'd be pleased to hear from
> anyone who knows of similar studies or examples.
