UW, Facebook Team Up To Study Teens’ Relationship With Digital Media
Facebook and the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health are teaming up to explore the relationship between teens and their use of digital technologies. It is part of a broader effort by Facebook to study how social media impacts teens. The project’s lead joins us to talk about the recently announced partnership, and what questions researchers will be looking to answer.
The Culture of Pregnancy
Search the internet on any given day, and you’ll find articles about how women lost their baby weight, rumors about which celebrity might be sporting a “bump,” and new science suggesting what women should — and shouldn’t do — while pregnant. Our guest says we’re consumed with pregnant women. She joins us to talk about how we got this way, and what this means for pregnant women.
