The interaction of social support and physical activity on obesity over 12-years in mid-aged and younger women
Evidence suggests people with strong social networks have lower mortality and morbidity and better self-rated health. Further, emerging evidence suggests that weight status and physical activity are affected by social networks. The aim of this study is to longitudinally assess the interactional association of social support and physical activity on weight status (obesity), and whether this differs between mid-aged and younger women.
