Courtney M. Monroe is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health Promotion, Education, and Behavior in the Arnold School of Public Health. Kristen Zosel is a physical therapist, research fellow with the United States Army, and Doctoral Candidate in the Department of Health Promotion, Education, and Behavior. Their research focuses on how to best harness technologies for physical activity promotion, with a specific emphasis on better understanding how to leverage social networks and social support for these purposes. Dr. Monroe most recently carried out the Columbia Moves randomized controlled physical activity trial. Subsequently, Dr. Zosel recently led the coordination of focus groups among African American and Black adults to help culturally adapt Columbia Moves. Collectively, unique insights from these studies will help inform the broader challenges and opportunities in social networking research.
