At the next #prismSA meetup: “Social Media and the ‘Social Cure.'” Can social media promote large-scale positive behavior change?

The UT Health Science Center’s “One Community/One Book” selection for 2013 is Tina Rosenberg’s Join the Club: How Peer Pressure Can Transform the World. In the book, the Pulitzer-prizewinning author investigates movements and campaigns that have used the power of “peer pressure” to bring about life-altering behavior change in areas from health to lifestyle choices to political action. In this month’s meetup of the Professional Interest in Social Media (PrISM) group, we’ll discuss Rosenberg’s examples of the “social cure,” and the potential role of social media tools in promoting positive change.

Please RSVP at — we hope you can join us, and please invite your colleagues as well!
