Healthy Behavior Change White Paper

When healthy choices are readily available, people do not always choose them. Given this challenge, how can we support people to change unhealthy habits? How do we help them make changes that would improve their health? How do we help them maintain those changes? This paper sheds light on these questions.

Featured Keynote - Tina Rosenberg

Harnessing Peer Pressure for Behavior Change

We are thrilled to announce Tina Rosenberg, Pulitzer prize-winning journalist, winner of the National Book Award and author of Join the Club: How Peer Influence can transform the World, as our keynote speaker Wednesday, September 17th. Join the Club has been hailed as “timely, thoughtful and important” by the New York Times and well-thumbed versions of it have been passed around the halls of Healthy Gen since its publication in 2011.

Tina Rosenberg draws on academic research and stories from her own reporting for her book and her New York Times "Fixes" column for a fresh, surprising, and inspirational talk that will transform the way you think about behavior change. Rosenberg was also the first freelance journalist to receive a MacArthur Fellowship.

Rosenberg's perspective is truly a global one. Through her speaking and writing, she displays what can be learned from the political and social experience of countries all around the world. Her other two books, Children of Cain: Violence and the Violent in Latin America and The Haunted Land: Facing Europe's Ghosts After Communism, dive into issues of global democracy, and ultimately how nations do -- and should -- deal with a repressive past. A compelling presenter, Rosenberg gives audiences the opportunity to engage with her on these issues.
