Can We Crowdsource the Solution to Our Obesity Epidemic?
Watch the answer from ShapeUp’s Founder & CEO, Rajiv Kumar, M.D.
And then read our latest study, published in Obesity, which shows that when we work together with the people in our social network, we’re more likely to achieve our health goals.
Because the implications of these research findings are massive:
- Exploiting social networks to spread healthy behaviors has significant ramifications for public health
- The same forces that led to mass smoking cessation across our nation might be harnessesed to reverse—and perhaps solve—our growing obesity epidemic
- This has the potential to do wonders for our health while simultaneously driving down the cost of health care
