Nadia Deville-Stoetzel (Ph. D. candidate, UQAM) is a sociologist specializing in the analysis of social networks, particularly their influence during significant events in marginalized populations and their role in migratory experiences. During her postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Montreal Hospital Research Centre, she is studying the influence of social networks in the implementation of health programs, such as the Cardiovascular Health Awareness Program (CHAP). She carried out analysis on neighborhood relationships in the subsidized social housing where CHAP sessions were offered and on the influence of these relational dynamics on the participation in CHAP. Relationships can be sources of support as well as conflict in people’s lives, and Nadia is also investigating how they can alter the expected outcomes of an intervention and influence the diffusion of new behaviors within a peer group.
